Field Trip Reflection
My favorite part of the trip to Nauvoo was the living history center. It was my favorite because We got to make rope and see how they made bread in the 1840's. It was also cool to taste the bread too and I liked it. What I learned about how they lived in the 1840's is how they made their bricks for houses and other things. It turns out they would take the clay, sand, and water and mix it. Then they would shape them into bricks, dry them by turning them over, then put them into a giant oven like thing where they would get all the water out of them and also cook. I thought that was interesting. What I learned about the Mormon's moving west is that they were badly persecuted and treat badly. Sometimes even killed. I didn't know much about that before the trip. If I had to choose one thing to research about it would be what the temple is like. I thought the temple had looked interesting but I wonder what they do their and how and I just overall thought it was cool that they even had temples.
