Let's review. Life in the South after the Civil War was difficult for everyone. While Northerners and the federal government debated the politics of Reconstruction, Southerners (black and white) knew they needed to get planting or face more severe famine than the war had wrought. Sharecroppers worked the fields, agreeing to pay a portion of the harvest as rent for the land. It was a system that wealthy landowners quickly exploited to keep African Americans under their control. State governments started hiring out convicted criminals to business owners resulting in a booming prison population.

Canberra were far too good today and were particularly impressive in defence.

This has been a huge hit in my class, some of my older students like matching up the veggies ( there are two of each type) and others just like playing and planting their own garden. See how I made it with this full post here.

For many years after the Civil War, Southern states routinely convicted poor African Americans and some whites of vagrancy or other crimes, and then sentenced them to prolonged periods of forced labor. Owners of businesses, like plantations, railroads and mines, then leased these convicts from the state for a low fee. It was a win-win situation for people at the top. Business owners had an inexpensive workforce that couldn't make labor demands. And convicts were actually cheaper than slaves, so incentive to treat them well was low. The struggling state governments had nearly no overhead expenses when the convicts were leased, and the prisoners generated an enormous income stream. How big? In Alabama, convict leasing constituted 78% of the state's revenue in 6898!
After the growing as a seed pretend play, let the children know that today you will be painting with celery. Just like the flowers that Lola planted, celery starts as a tiny seed. Ask the children if they would like to try a taste of celery before they go to the table for art. Remind them that these celery sticks are for eating, and the celery in the paint is not because today you will be using that celery as a tool, not food.
