We went to Heritage Park on May 11, 2015.  We went to the park and started by riding the train and seeing the buildings that they have there.  Then we went to the school and acted like we were back in the time of the pioneers.  The school was only one big room.  One of the main rules was that ladies always go first.  The girls had to curtsy and the boys had to bow and then say their names.  In the pioneer school, if you were being disobedient or rowdy, you would have to stand in the corner with your arms help up behind your back.  If you continued to be rowdy, you had to hold books, and then eventually you would get the paddle.  After we learned this, we were glad we didn’t live back then.  Also, if you came unprepared you had to wear a hat that said, “dunce.”  We wrote on little chalkboards and learned the Deseret Alphabet.  We also learned about mountain men at the park and what it was like to be them.  We also got to pull handcarts to see how that would feel.  It was a little hard coming up the hills because you had to pull back and pull up on the bars.  We really loved our field trip and we hope we get to go again sometime soon!
