Whittling and Whistling Brigade

We learned about the Nauvoo Whittling and Whistling Brigade today.
Everyone can do their part to serve.
Even something as insignificant as whistling played an important role in protecting the Saints.

We did our own whittling and whistling with Ivory Soap.
I told the students yesterday to bring a pocket knife or carving knife to class today. One did. For the others, I had kitchen knives for them to carve with.
I told them to carve what they think a young boy in Nauvoo in 1844 would carve.
One of my students carved the shape of the state of Missouri, symbolizing his thoughts were on Zion.
A Piano
 A Person (from the front it looks more like a person )
