Nauvoo Field Trip Reflection
My favorite part of the trip was the rope making because I never knew how they made rope and i thought it was cool that they used plant fiber to make it. Something new I learned was that they would store candles in a box underground and that they would put straw with the candles. I also learned that in 1 day they could make 200 candles and I thought that was crazy. The Mormons moved west because they were being persecuted for their religion. I thought that is was interesting that the Mormons din't fight back against the people who wanted them to leave. I would want to go to the gunsmith and probably learn about how they made the guns back then because I think it would be cool to see if today we still use some of the same ways that they hunted back then.
