The Amish are a group of people who live in the United States, Canada and Europe. They are known for their plain dress and conservative lifestyle. Amish people live in a way that is different from most people in the U.S.
Amish people have been living in America since they came here from Switzerland in 1693. They wear plain clothing, which means they don’t wear bright colors or anything fancy. The men wear beards, and the women dress modestly.
Amish children go to school until they’re 14 years old, then they start working on farms or in businesses owned by their parents or other family members. Most Amish children do not get to go to college because they need to work on farms or businesses owned by their parents or other family members instead of getting an education at a university like other Americans do when they grow up.
Most Amish families have farms where they grow food for themselves and sell some of it at farmers markets or roadside stands near their homes. Some Amish families also keep animals like cows or horses for milk or meat as well as chickens for eggs and meat too!
