    1. 1. Daily life in the Renaissance http://www.gfalls.wednet.edu/staff/dlawrenc/The%20Renaissance/Renaissance%20WebQuest%202.htm By Evan Morrison
    2. 2. Average Family Life❖ The average family consisted of a set of parents and three children.❖ They lived in small houses, most with no more than two rooms and very low ceilings.❖ Would not be unusual for a family of four to share one bed.❖ There would be only two outfits and one pair of shoes per person.❖ Maybe a few tools as well as a few pieces of tableware in each household.
    3. 3. Men of the Renaissance❖ The men worked outside of the house, tending to the fields or working in a merchants shop.❖ They worked every day from morning till dusk.
    4. 4. Woman of the Renaissance❖ Women had a much lesser role in society than men.❖ Renaissance women were expected to stay home and take care of the children❖ Women were not allowed to take part in their husbands business.
    5. 5. Continued❖ Women who could not mary or lacked a dowry were actually forced to become nuns.❖ Customs and prejudice kept married women in the home and out of society.
    6. 6. Children of the Renaissance❖ As a child in a normal peasant family you would have been very lucky to survive the first years of your life, due to disease and poor nutrition.❖ Toddlers were often tied to something with a rope or confined to a wooden walker, this was due to the many fires and boiling liquids that the average household contained.❖ They were thought of as mini adults.❖ They were dressed like adults and treated like adults.❖ Children had no rights.❖ Still, a few children of wealthy families were allowed to have a few childhood toys, and be shielded from harsh daily life. http://www.renaissanceastrology.com/electionalrameseychildren.html
    7. 7. Children of the Renaissance Continued ()Boys()❖ Boys stayed home with their mothers until the age of 7 or 8, then they went off to serve as servants to wealthier families.❖ At the age or 14 they were able to take up apprenticeships at any number of stalls or shops.❖ The upperclass boys were often taught by a governor (an employer or person of authority), a tutor or sent to college.❖ They were often taught grammar and arithmetic, because they could become merchants or traders.❖ peasant boys, on the other hand, were often uneducated.
    8. 8. Girls of the Renaissance❖ Girls stayed at home with their mothers and learned the necessary skills to run a household.❖ If the family was poor it was not uncommon for the young girls to be put to work or sold as domestic servants.❖ A female was considered a “girl” until she was married.❖ Girls from upper class families might be educated in a nunnery until they could be married to improve the family fortunes.
    9. 9. Sources of Entertainment❖ Children played with makeshift or homemade toys.❖ Every few weeks the family would probably attend the local plays presented by traveling troupes, that arrived in the village or town.❖ Once in a while the entire family would go to observe jousting tournaments with most of the rest of the town.
