Dear Hoover Museum and National Park,
Thanks for showing us around. I loved the site. I took a lot of pictures. I didn’t want to go home. That was an awesome field trip. I felt bad for the kids that had to suffer from not eating. It is really sad seeing that.

Dear Gaylen,
Thank you for being our tour guide. What I learned is what Herbert Hoover did as a hobby, he went fishing a lot. He helped the country with hunger and when the great depression came he was the President and they blamed him for everything. He was a scapegoat. What I liked is the exhibits where the people were in 3-D sculptures. I liked the globe with all the wheat circles on it, representing where he fed the people. I liked the place where it showed the President’s school picture. My favorite part was seeing the President’s school picture. Thank you for being our tour guide.

Dear Gaylen,
Thank you for letting us come, it was so cool. This is what I liked about it, because it had the whole world on the floor and we got to see what Herbert Hoover did, and we got to see what his family looked like. Here are 3 things I learned: the names of the people in his family, what happened to people when the stock market crashed, and how many layers in the Earth. My favorite thing I liked about it was everything. Thank you.
