Children in New France had many chores. Small children might bring in the wood for the fireplace. Older girls would help cook, clean and make clothes. Fathers would teach their sons how to ice fish. All the children would help gather maple sap in the spring. When a boy was eleven or twelve, he could do a man"s work. He would help his father cut wood, carry stones from the field and build fences. He also helped plow, mow the hay and gather the crops.
