Hello! I am Mary Musgrove. I grew up in a creek village called Coweta. It was located near the city of Macon, Georgia. I spent most of my childhood learning how to gather wild plants. We used the plants for food and medicine. I was also taught how to farm, cook, and sew clothing. This is a picture of the land in Coweta where my village used to be.
When I was ten years old I moved to an English settlement with my fathers family near Charles Town, which is now known as Charleston, South Carolina. • I learned the customs of the English settlers and was taught how to speak English. Click on the bluewords throughout each slide to learn their meaning!
When I was fifteen I moved back to Coweta. Since I could speak both English and Creek, I was able to help the Creek Indians and English settlers talk to each other. • I started my own trading post where I traded Creek deerskin for English metal tools and cloth.
A few years later, James Oglethorpe and his English Settlers landed in Savannah, Georgia. Oglethorpe wanted to start a new English Colony, called Georgia. • I became Oglethorpe’s interpreter and helped him communicate with the Yamacraw Creek leader, Tomochichi. • I helped keep peace between the Creek Indians and the English Settlers. • Oglethorpe, Tomochichi, and I worked together with the Creek Indians and the English to start the colony of Georgia. This is a picture of my husband and I. We were communicating with the English so that everyone could live in peace.
So When Did All of This Take Place? I was born. I established my own trading post. I worked as an interpreter for Oglethorpe. 1717 1735 1733 1700 1722 1734 I married my husband, John Musgrove. James Oglethorpe arrived in Savannah and started the colony of Georgia. I was named the richest woman in Georgia.
Telling Time Tomochichi, Oglethorpe, and I told time much differently than you do today. We did not have clocks to help us determine what time of the day it was. Click on the Television to learn how time is told by using clocks.
Scrapbook Time!!! • Myself and other colonial children told time using the sun. • Just like Tomochichi explained earlier, light from the sun produced shadows on objects that would move throughout the day. • It was important for us to know that when the sun came up it was morning and when the sun went down it was night. • Take a few minutes and list three reasons in your scrapbooks why you think it is important to tell time. • When you have finished discuss what you have wrote down with your classmates at your table.

Click on the clock to learn how to tell time on analog and digital clocks by completing an interactive activity!
Who knew learning how to tell time could be so much fun? • Now that you have become more familiar with clocks we are going to model our own analog and digital clocks. • You will need: • Pencil • Glue • The analog and digital clock worksheets that your teacher passed out to you and your partner.
Scrapbook Time!!! • Let’s model the times 7:50 and 2:20 on our analog and digital clock worksheet. • Once you have modeled both times on your clocks, cut them out and glue them into your scrapbooks. • What is significant about the times 7:50 and 2:20? • Write your response in your scrapbook under each of your clocks. Click on the green light to continue
Time Memory Game : • You and the partner your teacher assigned to you will create and complete a time memory game! • At this time with your partner, think of ten different times and model them on the digital clock worksheets. • Once you have come up with ten different times and modeled them on the digital clocks, you will need to draw the hour and minute hands on each of the analog clocks to match the digital times that you have represented on the digital clocks.
Time to Play! • Cut out each of the digital and analog clocks that you have modeled. • Mix the digital clock cards up and lay them face down. • Mix the analog clock cards up and lay them face down in a separate pile. Face Down Clock Face Up Clock
Rules to the Time Memory Game • Player 1 will turn over a card in the digital clock pile and will say the time that is shown on the digital clock. • Then Player 1 will turn over a card in the analog clock pile and will say the time that is shown on the analog clock. • If the two cards reveal the same time, Player 1 will pick up both cards and place them in a pile next to them. • If the two cards turned over do not match, then the cards are turned face down and put back in their appropriate piles. • Player 2 will then repeat the same process. • Each player takes turns finding matches until all of the cards have been picked up.
Scrapbook Time!!! What would you do? • In your scrapbooks, answer the following question. • How would you teach colonial children to tell time using analog and digital clocks? • Please write three to four sentences to explain your answer. Click on the green light to continue
What Time Is It? • Now that you know how to model times of the day on analog clocks by drawing the minute and hour hands, you are going to use your bodies to represent the minute and hour hands of an analog clock! • You will also be demonstrating physical activity by: • Hopping • Jumping • Leaping • Completing Stretching Exercises • Doing Push-Ups
How to Hop… • To hop you pick one foot up, bend your opposite knee, and jump landing on the foot that you did not pick up.
How to Jump… • To jump you stand on two feet, bend your knees, and put pressure on your toes by extending forward and up.
How to Leap… • To leap you take off from one foot and extend your legs to land on the opposite foot from which you took off on.
How to Stretch… • In this stretching activity you will be: • Twisting your body- Stand up straight and rotate your body at your hips by moving from right to left and left to right. • Stretching up and stretching down- To stretch up, stand up straight and reach up as high as you can with your arms. To Stretch down, reach down as low as you can with your arms. • Touching your toes- To touch your toes sit down on the ground with your legs straight in front of you and reach your arms to touch your toes.
How to do a Push-up… 1. Lie on the floor with your chest facing the ground. 3. Lay your palms flat on the floor. 4. Keep your legs straight and your toes tucked under your feet. 5. Straighten your arms and push your body up with the strength of your arms. 6. Lower your body back towards the floor.
Let’s Tell Time! • We are going to outside to complete this activity. • If I have given you a blue tag you will be the minute hand. • If I have given you a green tag you will be the hour hand. Minute hand Hour Hand
10:25 Your Task 12 11 1 • You will be modeling the times of a clock by using your body. • 12 hula hoops will display each hour of a circular clock. • In order to prevent getting hurt, as a group you will perform the three stretching exercises that I went over. (Twisting, stretching up and down, and touching your toes) • Once you have completed the stretching exercises, everyone will stand outside of the hula hoops. • Once a time of the day is called out you will choose to hop, jump, or leap to your position of the time your teacher announces. • After you have represented the correct time on the clock, you will choose to hop, jump, or leap to the outside of the hula hoops and perform one push up. 10 2 9 3 8 4 7 5 It’s time to go outside and play! 6 • If you are the hour hand, you would line up with the other hour hands to make a straight line pointing in between the 10 and the 11. • If you are the minute hand, you would line up with the other minute hands to make a straight line pointing towards the five.
Scrapbook Time!!! • It is important to know what time of the day it is so that you can be on time to school, the bus, or baseball practice. Time tells us whether it is the morning, afternoon, or night. • You are going to make a Daily Time Schedule and record the times of the events that occur throughout your day. • Then we will compare some of the times that each of you experience a specific event of the day. Click on the green light to continue
You will record the times of the following events: what time you wake up, what time you go to bed, what time you eat breakfast, what time you eat dinner, what time you do your homework, what time you do chores, and what time you read. • For each event you will need to fill in the time on a digital and analog clock. • Here is an example of what your chart should look like. 6:45 Click on the green light to continue 9:00 7:15
Thank you for joining me on this adventure!!! • I enjoyed teaching you how to tell time! • I hope that you will use this knowledge on how to tell time using analog and digital clocks so that you can determine what time of the day it is. Click on the picture to return back to Savannah!
