Brockbank Fourth-Graders Visit 'This Is The Place Heritage Park'

Submitted by brenda.johnson on

Brockbank fourth-graders recently had the opportunity to go on a field trip to, This Is The Place Heritage Park. There students were able to take part in a ‘hands-on learning’ experience that complements the state curriculum for fourth-grade Utah History. Students participated in "life in Pioneer Times"  which consisted of pushing a handcart. The students discovered  what it was like to come West with a handcart. They also got to experience being in  a pioneer school where they learned about the Deseret Alphabet, how to mind your manners, and to come on time, or you may find yourself wearing the dunce cap. They also got to meet the blacksmith in his actual working shop. It was a fun field trip and the students really enjoyed it!
