Charts and Graphics
At the historical reenactment I learned about all of the the people that lived in the 1770's and what they looked like, I also learned that every person had their own job and they each helped each other by trading things they made or buying things from other people. I liked how each person was different and had a different attitude. I also liked how people had much different jobs then we do today, and that everyone had a different part to play and a different way to help the village.
