On the back, complete a journal entry as if you were a 10/11 year old boy/girl living in the 1700's. Describe one day of your life. Explain what job/chores you would have. Explain what goals you would be working towards (ex. an apprentice in a blacksmith shop would want to learn his trade so he could open up his own shop). Use first-person (I, me, my).
- Example: "Today was a very difficult day. I woke up with the sun and had to milk the cows and collect the eggs from the chickens before I could even eat breakfast. When I did eat, it was corn mush...." or "My fingers still hurt from work yesterday, but I have to go back today. Being an apprentice to a tinsmith is hard work. Yesterday I worked 10 hours with only a 20 minute break to eat...."
