I feel that these figures help represent the population of the district and their lives.

After explaining to the students what each word meant, she pulled out a huge piece of paper that she had written fun and exciting sentences on that had missing words in them. The students had to decide which word went into each sentence and tape the word into the space they thought was
For students, the school day started at around seven o’clock in the morning, and consisted of several short breaks during the day. They would be served breakfast at nine o’clock, and then dinner from two to five o’clock in the afternoon. While the boys were at school learning more advanced subjects, girls stayed at home with their mothers in order to learn about the duties of a plantation mistress. Many of their lessons included learning proper social etiquette, French, needlework, weaving, and cooking.
