  • 1. Puritans<br />Life in Massachusetts Bay Colony<br />Salem, Massachusetts<br />
  • 2. Puritan Family<br /><ul><li>Women were responsible for making sure children grew into good Puritan adults.
  • 3. Puritans were strict parents who loved their children very much. They used mental discipline and love but, if it didn't work, they would use physical force.
  • 4. The practice of "sending out" was used. Children often were sent to stay with other families for training, discipline, apprenticeship, etc.
  • 5. Puritan parents were discouraged from showing affection so the children would be ready to obey God’s laws.</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>90% of all Puritan children had Biblical names. The most common names for boys were John, Joseph, Samuel and Josiah
  • 6. Common names for girls were Mary, Elizabeth and Sarah, followed by Hannah, Rebecca, Anne, Deborah, Huldah, Abigail, Rachel and Ruth.
  • 7. Children were often named for a previous child who had died.
  • 8. Puritans had great respect for the elderly. They had the best seats in the meeting house. This was because they believed that God, gave them long life for a purpose--to influence the younger generation.</li></ul>The Very Young and the Very Old<br />
  • 9. Puritan Children<br /><ul><li> Children were expected to behave under the same strict code as the adults—doing chores and attending church services.
  • 10. Any show of emotion, such as excitement, fear, or anger, was discouraged
  • 11. Disobedience was severely punished.
  • 12. Children rarely played, as toys and games were scarce and Puritans saw these activities as sinful.</li></ul>Title of work: The Mason Children: David, Joanna, and Abigail<br />Date of completion: 1670<br />
  • 13. Education<br />The reason for education was religious. To become holy, they needed to read the Bible. <br />Children were also taught to read so that they would not become barbarians and understand the laws of the colony.<br />1647 Massachusetts Law said that every township with 50 families had to have a teacher and that the citizens of the town had to pay the teacher’s salary.<br /> Dame School in Massachusetts<br />These were schools run by neighborhood women who taught the basics of education to young children.<br />
  • 14. Hornbook<br />The hornbook used by children had a sheet of paper containing the letters of the alphabet, attached to wood and was protected by a thin sheet of transparent animal horn or mica. The wooden frame often had a handle.<br />
  • 15. Government in Massachusetts Bay Colony<br />The General Court that ran the colony was a legislature with representatives who made laws.<br />Each town sent two representatives to the Court. <br />Government leaders had to be Puritans.<br />Only white, male church members who owned property could vote.<br />Bad Puritans went to the stocks.<br />How embarrassing!<br />
  • 16. Some Crazy Laws<br /><ul><li>One law forbade the wearing of lace.
  • 17. It was against the law for a man to wear long hair, or to smoke in the street.
  • 18. A young man could not date a young lady without the consent of her parents.
  • 19. A man was not permitted to kiss his wife in public. Captain Kimble, returning from a three-years' ocean voyage, kissed his wife on his own doorstep and spent two hours in the stocks.</li></li></ul><li>Going to Church the Puritan Way<br />Church services were held in the meetinghouse which was also used for town meetings.<br />Sunday mornings the minister would give a sermon that lasted for hours.<br />Sunday afternoon, back to the meeting house for more services.<br />In the winter the meetinghouse was freezing so you might bring a warming box to keep your feet warm. Or you might bring your dog for the same purpose.<br />A replica of a 17th-century Puritan Meeting House at Danvers, Massachusetts<br />Charlie would not be very good in church.<br />Warming box for coals to warm Puritan feet.<br />
  • 20. Don’t Misbehave During Church Services!<br />Using this "staff,“ a church official would poke anyone misbehaving in church. In this illustration, the boy is being punished for turning around to talk to his friend.<br />
  • 21. Salem Witch Trials - 1692<br />What do you think? <br />Watch the clip and see <br />for yourself.<br />http://school.discoveryeducation.com/schooladventures/salemwitchtrials/story/<br />
