Yale University,Yale University is an American private Ivy League research university located in New Haven, Connecticut. Founded in 1701 in the Colony of Connecticut, the univ…ersity is the third-oldest institution of higher education in the United States.
In colonial Massachusetts, education was less practical, but more focused on theory and ethics. There were more boys schooling; compared to the number of girls who were en…rolled into school.
It ALL depended on who you were, what "class" you lived in, and what gender you were. In general, men were given more oppurtunity to have an education then women. Poor men had… little hope of having a very thorogh education. Most people believed that all women needed to know was about keeping the home. Women weren't even allowed to attend college !!! Even still some men believed women should be educated and opened schools where young girls could learn to, read ,write, greek or latin, arithmetic, and a few other subjects. As for men, besides having the upperhand (when it comes to an education) most young men learned the trade there father knew. It was usually frowned upon for a teen boy to enter a apprentiship under a different trade then their father's. The upperclass men attended college (Harvard, William and Mary, ect.). Hope this helps !, sincerely, Bethany but most women coulg fo to collage but that's if there husbands would let them go but other then that most wamen didnt learn anything
Education was harsh, but stable. Most children who couldn't afford official schooling referred to home schooling. One most common type of school was a Dame School. Dame School…s were private school provided for the working class children before they were old enough to work.
The land wasn't very hilly, but there were many fresh rivers and lakes in the area. Many of the early colonists drank this water, and were perfectly healthy.
Colonial time Connecticut was very poor to begin with, but soon the tobacco help the colony expand and become prosperous. The trades were farming, metal work, and merc…hant goods. The colony was dependent on trade.
-mostly Puritans -immigrants weren't very welcome -class system was used -religious freedom -most farmed + fished -exported lumber and fish -imported slaves -gov…ernment power was limited
education was very important to the puritans who settled in the new england colonies because they wanted everyone to be able to read the bible. new england was where our natio…ns first public schools were established.
It was harsh, farming was the men's job and the wives was to cook, and clean house. Of course in her spare time she was expected to: Till and plant a large garden,Tend the l…arge family garden and preserve the food.Milk and care for the family cow or cows.Churn butter and make cheese.Salt the fish if a catch was good.Slop the hogs.Spin, knit, weave and make the clothes for the family.Do the laundry and darn the socks.Fetch the water.Gather thatch for the roof.Operate the smokehouse.Grind the grain to make flour.Tend the bee hive.Chop the wood for the fire.Make soap and candles.Keep the accounts.Be the spiritual guideBe the nurse and caregiver.Raise and educate the children.And such other duties as may be assigned.
NEW ANSWER: As in all of the New England Colonies, Connecticut had rocky soil, and people usually only grew enough food to feed their families. Because of the bad soil, many o…f the New England colonists would migrate further south to where the soil was much better for growing crops.
Education in all the Southern colonies during that time was normally for the wealthy. Girls were taught basics, and boys were taught other things like Latin or math.
Life in Connecticut was harsh for most colonists but they managed to survive. The summers in Connecticut were mild but the winters were much colder than the English. They usua…lly farmed like they grew corn, beans, squash, and apples. They also raised cattle for beef and milk. Shipbuilding, fishing, and whaling were also ways they make a living along the coast of Connecticut. They also hunted game, and wove the fabrics they needed.
Education in North Carolina was very expensive: Schools did not spring up in the area we now call North Carolina as they did in colonies like Maryland or Virginia. In most A…merican colonies, people came from Europe with the intention of establishing organized, planned communities and towns. However, the settlers who drifted down into Carolina were mainly from Virginia and the northern colonies and were primarily seeking good farmland. These family farmers, who were known as yeomen, worked hard to develop small, self-sufficient farms and relied on their children to help work on those farms. The twelve children of Augustine and Elizabeth Dishong are examples of one family who lived productive lives in colonial society. The family, which was Baptist, first owned land in Chowan County, where Augustine operated a ferry across the Chowan River. They later moved to the backcountry and operated a large, successful peach orchard in Orange County. But none of the children ever attended a school to learn to read or write. Many children of this time received no formal schooling because their parents saw no need for the ideas taught in schools, and they could not afford to pay for it, anyway. The Dishong children, as did the majority of colonial children, learned instead by watching and imitating parents and brothers and sisters and through hearing stories told by their relatives and other elders in the community. They learned at home as time and the growing season permitted - usually after dark, between chores, or during the winter months. Hope this Helps! :)

•If you weren't a farmer then you traded up and down the Connecticut river with the Native Americas they would give steel tools for furs from the animals. •You can make …a living of agriculture (farming wheat, barley, oats, corn, and fishing. •You can practice your religious beliefs as you wish a Puritan nobleman's heaven. •There is a temperate climate and right by a body of water •It is a wealthy colony thank you i am doing a history project and that helps alot!:)
