Nauvoo Field Trip Reflection
My favorite part was the Family Living Center! In the Family Living Center we made rope, carded wool, learned about candle making and ate bread made in a brick oven. Another favorite of mine was the wagon tours! They showed us all of the historic homes in Old Nauvoo, and some of them were made with brick, but most homes were made with logs. Something I learned about how pioneers lived in the 1840's is that instead of refrigerators they would bury their food underground to keep it cool. Something I learned about why the Mormons moved West is because their leader was killed and they wanted to escape religious prosecution because conflicts started to arise. If I had to choose one thing to learn more about, I would choose to learn more about why the Mormons left, and what they left behind.
