Last Friday, the 5th
grade went to Springfield, IL. We went to the Lincoln Museum, Capitol
Building, Representative Sommer’s office, and Lincoln’s tomb. Our first
stop was to the Lincoln Museum. We watched “Lincoln’s Eyes” first. In
this show, they talked about how Lincoln’s eyes showed his emotion
throughout his life. In the museum, you could go through his cabin
where he lived when he was younger, and there was a creepy hand hanging

came in, and many balloons dropped from the ceiling.
After the museum,
we went to the Representative Sommer’s office to eat lunch, we had
pizza. Mr. Sommer bought us the pizza. Then, he took us on a tour of the
Our last stop was
at Lincoln’s tomb. We took a tour through the tomb. Abraham Lincoln was
in the same room with his family, but his family was in the wall while
he was 6ft underground.
That was our 5th
grade field trip to Springfield, IL 2016! The field trip to the Lincoln
museum, Representative Sommer’s Office, the Capitol building, and
Lincoln’s tomb. It was a blast!
