Dear Herbert Hoover Museum,

Thank you for letting our fourth grade classes visit the Hoover Museum. I learned so much about him. I can’t wait to tell everybody how great it was. My favorite part was the gift shop. You have so many things I loved about the Museum that I can’t even name them all! Thanks so much!

Love

Dear Herbert Hoover Museum Staff,
Thank you for teaching us about Herbert Hoover. One thing I thought was interesting is that Lou Henry Hoover never cashed in any checks people gave her. Another thing I thought was intersting was when the blacksmith made the metal shape like that. Something I learned was Herbert Hoover saved many lives by giving food to the hungry. Anther thing I learned that he had a small house and his dad and mom died when he was young.

2 things that I learned was that Herbert Hoover’s wife collected weapons and that Herbert Hoover had 2 dogs. Here are 2 other things that were interesing was he and his wife were born the same year. The second interesting thing was that the people in Belgium were actually eating sawdust and other stuff in their bread. Thanks for letting us visit.

Thank you for giving us a tour of the museum. I learned that Herbert Hoover loved fishing and that when he was president he received no money. I found it interesting that the Belgian people sent Herbert Hoover a statue of the Egyptian godess of life, and that the men and women sat separate from the men in the meeting house.

Dear Herbert Hoover Museum Staff,
I had a lot of fun at the field trip! I leared that one of Herbert Hoover’s favorite things was that he loved to fish. I also learned that Herbert Hoover had some Belgian Sheep dogs. I thought that the meeting place was very interesting. How the girls and the boys had to be separated was the interesting part about that. I also thought his house was very cool. The trap door, the bed, and the stove was the best part. I had a great time at the Herbert Hoover Museum!

Dear Herbert Hoover Museum Staff,
Thank you for letting me and my classmates come to the museum. Some parts that I liked were the blacksmith, movie, and Herbert Hoover’s childhood home. I think that the gravesite was cool. It makes Iowa more special that Herbert Hoover lived in Iowa. I liked the gift shop because now Ican remember my field trip to the Herbert Hoover Museum

Dear Herbert Hoover Museum Staff,
Thank you for letting me and classmates come to the Museum. I really liked seeing the blacksmith shop. It was really cool how it turned into metal. I also loved the house. I can’t believe that he really lived there. And I learned some stuff I never knew before. Thank you again. I loved the museum.

Dear Herbert Hoover Museum Staff,
Thank you for teaching me about the life of Herbert Hoover. I had lots of fun touring the museum and learning interesting facts about his life. It was great to hear about how he saved lives by feeding starving people around the world and looking around where he lived. I loved the tour and I’m looking forward to coming back again soon.

Dear Hoover Museum Staff,
My favorite things that I learned…I learned that Herbert Hoover’s father was a blacksmith and his mother was a seamstress. He died when he was 90 years old. His teacher wanted to adopt him. Beside the church there is a cry room. During wars around the world, he fed starving people. Herbert Hoover married Lou Henry. In his house they had to fit five people in one room. He had an older brother and a younger sister. He was buried on a hill by his house.

I’ve learned a lot about Herbert Hoover. Such as that he was buried on top of a hill by his wife, and he went to Stanford University and became a mining engineer and traveled the world. One thing that I really liked was when the tour guide told us how Herbert Hoover saved over one billion lives! That’s amazing! I’ve learned so much I can’t name them all. So thank you!
Sincerely,
Justin

Dear Hoover Museum Staff,
I liked the museum and the house that he lived in. I learned that his teacher wanted to adopt him and that in church they separated
the boys and the girls and that the teacher would slap them on their hands. And that his mom died when he was 9 and his father died when her was 6. That is what I liked and I learned.

Dear Hoover Museum Staff,
I learned a lot of stuff today. Some of my favorite things about our wonderful field trip were seeing where they all worked and lived. The museum was so cool! I also liked the interesting letters and things the mom’s made to thank him for all he’s done. One of the most interesting things was the world map on the ground that showed you how many people he gave food to. Herbert Hoover helped out a lot of people.I didn’t know Herbert Hoover got blamed for the Great Depression when he became President of the United States. Thank you for letting us come here for our wonderful fieldtrip.
Sincerely,

Dear Hoover Musuem Staff,
I’d like to thank you for making us come to your wonderful museum. You guys taught us about Herber Hoover had one older brother, and one little sister. I also liked your awsome giftshop. The giftshop has a lot of items about Herbert Hoover. His first house is a small one bedroom. He was ninety when he died. Just wondering how did he die? Why wasn’t Herbert Hoover buried near his family but just his wife? Also thank you for letting us watch your video in your theater. When did Herbert Hoover get married? He did have to feed the Europeans before they starved to death. Thank you for teaching us and your museum was big and creative. Have a happy year!

Dear Hoover Musuem Staff,
I enjoyed our trip to your musuem. One of my favorite parts was when we went into the cottage and the school house. But my favorite part was the blacksmith’s shop. I though it was cool how he molded the steel and made it into a dinner bell. I will definitely come back.

Dear Hoover Musuem Staff,
Thank you for our great field trip! A few things I liked best were the gravesite, the cottage, and the huge map with all the places Herbert Hoover brought food to the starving. A few of the facts that I found interesting were that his father was a blacksmith and his mother was a seamstress, and that he was a Quaker. Our outside tour was very amazing! Also our inside tour was very cool.
I would like to thank our guides and everyone who helped us with our visit. Anyway, thank you!

Dear Hoover Musuem Staff,
Thank you for letting us visit. It was very fun. My favorite thing we did/saw there was learning about the blacksmith forge. I liked watching the guy forge the part of the dinner bell. The thing to make or pump the flames higher and hotter. I also liked learning that 1,500 – 2,200 degrees was needed to bend the metal to the shape that you want. Thanks for letting us visit. I hope my parents let me go there again before it closes. I loved all the other part too, and the giftshop was awesome!

Westfield Elementary October 7, 2011 at 8:44 pm

Dear Herbert Hoover Staff,
1 thing I learned and was interesting was when Herbert Hoover went through his wife’s stuff and found all her checks. Also how Herbert’s birthday is also Sydney Brown’s. I love how his house where he was born was so small. Also that there refrigerator was their trap door basement. I also like the cool stuff about his fishing.

Thank you for letting us come. It was really cool seeing the coins in the giant world. My favorite part is when we watched the blacksmith and seeing the ox, horse, and the mule shoes. And when we went into the church and the girls had to sit on a different side than the boys. I had such a fun time.

Dear Herbert Hoover Staff,
I learned a lot about Herbert Hoover and his family and all the other things that you showed us. I learned that Lou Henry kept a bunch of checks in her desk and never cashed them in. I also learned that Herbert Hoover was born in a small cottage that only had two rooms. The church was very interesting because the girls were separated from the boys. It was also interesting that Herbert Hoover fed over 60 countries. I thought the Herbert Hoover museum was very cool and I would like to come back some time.

Dear Herbert Hoover Staff,
Thank you for teaching me and my class about Herbert Hoover and Lou. I didn’t know Lou was the Girl Scout leader. I also didn’t know about Herbert Hoover having dogs. Another thing I learned was that Herbert Hoover was not president for all 4 years. It was my first year going to Herbert Hoover’s birth place. I thought it’s cool that Herbert Hoover learned the same things we did. Thank you for teaching me about Herbert Hoover.

Thanks for showing us around the Herbert Hoover museum. I learned that he helped feed kids from over seventy countries. I also learned that Herbert grew up in Iowa. I liked the outside tour because we got to learn about his life when he lived in Iowa. I also thought the lockers were cool because we got to see the presidents when we pushed a button. Thank you so much!

Dear Herbert Hoover Staff,
Thank you so much for teaching us all about Herbert Hoover. I enjoyed learning about him. My favorite part was the blacksmith shop. It was really really cool how he showed us how to make metal into a loop! It was really interesting that the house he was born in is still there. I never knew he fed all those people. It must have been amazing for the people. Thanks again for everything.

Hello my name is Elisha Fry. I go to Bettendorf Iowa school called Neil Armstrong. I’m in 5th grade. When I went inside your museum I wanted to learn about Herber Hoover so bad! When I saw the map of the places he helped, I was amazed. When we walked into his life exhibit, the statues were so real. But it was sad because his dad died when he was 6. Then three years later his mom died. So he had to be an orphan until he went to live with his aunt and uncle. The house that he was raised in was so small and five people had to live in it. They had to cook outside on their porch so they wouldn’t get hot in their house. Well goodbye and thanks for teaching me about Herbert Hoover.
Sincerely,
Elisha Fry
