Colonial times was a challenging period of time. Colonial times went from 15211776. Colonial people came for land, freedom, and most of all better life's.
An average colonial family had about five minuets of play a day with no footballs or
soccer balls no electronics. Only board games , hoop and stick, and ball and cup.
Survival was a big threat in colonial times. Even chores were for survival. If
someone in the 14 membered family forgot their chore it could be a fatal mastic.
Colonial times held lots of challenges and danger.
like traveling. Traveling was a big challenge because
often it took a while so you needed a big enough supply
of food for trip.
If you made it to twelve you would have been
lucky because the first twelve years were the
hardest. They were the hardest because of
health, food, and survival. If you made it to twelve it
would be sure you would live a long life. But in 1520
a long life was about 20 years old, so there was
practically no long life.
Sailing and fishing were some of the
biggest challenges because catching fish was
easy. But everything else was hard because
you had to find enough worms, buy a
boat, get a fishing pole, and have a big enough
bucket for the fish. Then if you did that you
found an easier source of food.
Staying healthy was big. Some people
died of common colds, so if you were sick too
long you could die. Did you know that 90% of
Europeans were wiped out because of
diseases like the flu, so health was a huge
battle in colonial times to stay alive.
Colonial Families faced everyday challenges like moving from place to
place. Moving from place to place was a challenge because often it took a
while so you would need food. Hunting for food was a big challenge
because if you were loud you wouldn’t see any animals and then you
wouldn't have any food. Most challenges were for survival so technically
survival is what they had to move for it’s what they had to hunt for it is
what challenges were for.
