when teaching early American colonists, make gruel for the kids to try; "To explore what it was like to live in the Jamestown Colony we ate gruel for breakfast. It is pretty much flavored water. We learned that the colonists in early Jamestown were mainly ‘gentlemen’ and they didn’t want to plant crops or work. Many starved.
