Life in Canada during the 1800s
How They Dressed
The wealthy would have their clothes made by a tailor or dressmaker, but for less well-off people, there was much more manufacturing going on.
How Germans Got Around In The 1800'S

They had horses and chariots to carry themselves in. They also had to walk. They also had bicycles to ride on and to go places.

There are a few different hobbies that people engaged in during the 1700s and 1800s, but people back then did not have leisure time like they do today. Some of the hobbies they might have engaged in were wood carving, drawing, sports, or making models.

Reoccurring modes of dress for women in the 1800's were bustles,corsets (called "stays" in the early part of the century), petticoats, hoops, pantalets, floor-length dresses for women who had reached puberty. Most undergarments were made of muslin (sometimes silk or more expensive fabric for people who could afford them) and outer clothes were made from calico, lindsey-woolsey, wool and other durable, cheap fabrics that the working class could afford. Of course, those who enjoyed a more comfortable station in life had finer clothes made from finer materials.

German Jobs
They worked at steel mills, railroads ,farmers, peddlers, steamship, and local merchants.
The wealthy people ate many kinds of meat, such as fish, pork, beef, chicken, quail, lamb. They also had various types of breads, and alcohol. The poor ate tons and tons of potatoes.

What They Ate
The lower classes would consume mainly pork products: bacon, sausages, ham made into stews and pies. The middle classes added beef and mutton to the list of meats and if you were upper class, then chicken, duck, wild fowl, venison and all manner of fish and seafood would appear on your dinner table along with a few vegetables, lots of sauces, pastries, jellies and other sweets.

The mexicans research report!
This Presentation is by The Mexican Family; Timmy, Ambrose, Juan, and Carlos. We will be talking about the way they dressed, how they spoke, what they ate, their jobs, and what they did to occupy themselves.
There was a very large class divide between the upper classes and the poor.
The rich, spoke with a plum in their mouths, and doing the rain in Spain talk from My Fair lady, whereas the working class, poor, probably spoke very crudely and the polar opposite to the upper class.

How They Occupied Themselves
They worked a lot longer hours in those days. Much less free time, because there was a lot less automation. They played various games and music was a big source of entertainment. Everyone in the town would go and visit any show or concert or play that came to town.
Their Jobs
There were many different jobs during the 1800's such as working on the railroads, charcoal making, farming, and much more. In the early 1800's machines were just coming into production. The machines helped people get jobs done faster and cheaper.
How The French Dressed
French Canadians wear modern Western-style clothing. The traditional costume of the Acadians is still worn on special occasions. Women wear white bonnets and blouses, black skirts, and white aprons. Men wear white shirts, black vests, and knee-length black pants. White stockings and black shoes are worn by both men and women.
The French Canadians were like most average people, they traveled by Boat, they used the boat when they traded, traveling, and punishments. They also traveled by horse, horse drawn carriages, or just plain walking EVERYWHERE.
Their Transportation
They got around just like everyone else back then. They got to their destination by walking or by riding horseback, or in a wagon, where a horse would be tugging them around. They also had steam trains to ride in.
What They Ate
Quebec has a rich, distinctive French-Canadian food. Popular dishes include a meat pie, and a stew made from meatballs and pigs' feet. Other favorites include French onion soup, pea soup, and poutine, a traditional dish made with French fries or grated potatoes. Quebec is also known for its maple syrup. Children enjoy eating a natural candy made by pouring boiling maple syrup onto fresh snow
Their Work And Hobbies
The French Canadians worked like a common Canadian, some may be a famer, store owner, doctor ect. But it was a bit challenging for them to find work due to the critical Canadians. Hockey, the Canadian national sport, is popular among French Canadians. Every team in the NHL includes French Canadians.
How They Spoke
French Canadians are the largest group of Francophones (French speakers) in North America. The vocabulary and pronunciation of Canadian French differ from those of the French spoken in France. Québécois is based on an older form of French and also contains many English expressions.
In Germany there is only one official language and that is German. If people from other countries come to Germany and they want to get the German citizenship, they need to speak German. But there are a lot of people who haven`t got citizenship and not all of them speak German - though that makes things hard for them, of course.

How they migrated and settled
The Scottish established an early colony in 1821 in Nova Scotia, Sir William Alexander was granted a charter for Nova Scotia. A few Scots immigrated to New France, but the major early movement of Scots to Canada Happened when recruited by the Hudson’s Bay Company for service in the West.
Scottish Canadians got around by horse carriage, horse back and they walked. They used those three ways to get to what ever destination they were going to.
What Scottish Canadians ate and drank
Their hobbies were and occupation
The roots of Scottish rugby go back a long way. Many ball games played in Scotland, and referred to as "football" were frequently as similar to rugby as they were to soccer. The Edinburgh Academy was also involved in the first ever international rugby union game when a side representing England met the Scottish national side.
How they dressed in the 1800's
oatmeal, barley, and potatoes. There is also the traditional haggis. Scots also enjoy rich vegetable soups, seafood in many forms, beef, oatcakes (a tasty biscuit), and short-bread (a rich, cookie-like confection).
It is hard to emphasize enough the lack of information about clothing in the Scottish Highlands until the middle of the 1800s, but around the late 1700s to early 1800s. Scottish Highland clothing became more distinct from Irish clothing of the same period. The Scottish Highlanders adopted and kept several forms of clothing such as the bonnet and plaid, both of which were originally worn in the Lowlands and then migrated into the Highlands, where they developed their own distinct forms. Moreover, checkered cloth, which was worn to some extent in Celtic cultures throughout history. These highly-developed tartans may have existed well before this period, but it's hard to know, as no remains have been found.
