Transcript of The middle colonies

Although Quakers wanted their children to be able to read the bible, like other religious groups in the Middle Colonies,it was left up to the parents to decide how the child's educated. Boys might study classical languages, history, literature, mathematics, and/or natural science, depending on their social class. Girls rarely went to school and were often tutored at home in a variety of household and social skills. Economy The Middle Colonists exported wheat, barley, oats, and livestock to the Southern Colonies and the West Indies.
Used falling water to power mills, ironworks and other kinds of workshops.
They also made hardware, clocks, watches, locks, guns, glass, stoneware, nails, paper, rope, and cloth. Trade kept port towns bustling.
The imports they got from England were books, paintings, clothing, and furniture. Colonist in the middle colonies didn't have too many hobbies. One hobby the colonists did have was racing horses though. Colonial men also hunted (they thought of hunting as a relaxing sport). Children would put on puppet shows as a hobby also.
