Weeks 13 and 14 of school we learned about the Enlightenment using Layers of Learning, year 3 unit 9.

We had an enlightenment era coffeehouse. We pretended we were in Williamsburg about 1775 and talked about all sorts of things of the time. We had hot chocolate and snacks and turned the lights down like we only had candles. It was so fun.
