Report: Because it was a very cold & wet day, my class was not able to eat our picnic lunch outside on the picnic tables or climb the temple mound, but the curator, MS Jan Taylor did an excellent job in presenting information in an interesting manner on a level that my students were able to understand. I have taken my students in the past when the weather was more favorable and spent the afternoon playing ball games and roasting marshmallows & hot dogs.
