DERRY — It was a step back in history as fifth-graders at Grinnell Elementary School presented a look at life in colonial times.

The school hosted a Colonial Fair, giving students a chance to team up and take on a research project that included writing papers on a specific historical topic, while gathering artifacts and other items to use on a special display.

The fair was held Jan. 22, with families and school staff invited to hear students’ presentations on themes like pets in colonial times, food, schools, and weapons used for hunting or protection.

Students were dressed in colonial outfits, and several display also included snacks like corn muffins and cider to offer to visitors passing by.
