Most appropriate for elementary and early middle school-aged students, this book introduces readers to the colonial period by examining “samplers,” as a case study. "Samplers" were made by stiching embroidery patterns onto narrow strips of cloth, a practice brought to colonial America by early European women settlers. A Sampler View of Colonial Life includes several projects for students, enabling them to experience some of the pastimes of 18th century childhood.
