Gruenbaum, Thelma
Designed for use at 4th-through-10th-grade level, this short history of the Massachusetts Bay Colony provides a view of colonial life style and culture prior to the American Revolution. The first sections discuss the Puritan migration and early settlement around Boston. Descriptions of colonial housing, furniture, food, clothing, clothing styles, and common household items are provided in the next selections. An explanation of how to make soap and candles is presented in a section on the colonist as recyclist. Government, education, religion, art, music, printing, books, libraries, leisure activities, and entertainment are described in the following sections. A brief explanation of the reasons for the American Revolution is provided in the final section. Hand-made drawings by a 12-year old illustrate the content. (DE)
