Corinth 5th graders on Thursday got to take a field trip back in time without ever leaving the school.

As part of the elementary’s annual Colonial Days celebration, the students put on a traditional square dancing performance for their parents, made crafts reminiscent of the 1600s and 1700s, and even tried their hands writing with feathered pens.

Girls donned traditional prairie dresses and bonnets.
