Participate in the church scene as poor dead Tom returns home, learn more about those critters the boys were always trading, and play a game of marbles.  Plan to help us do some whitewashing, and decide for your self if it is work or play!  You can also learn about the kinds of caves Tom and Huck used as their secret hideouts, and be sure not to miss the chance to taste some delectable foods such as ham, cornbread, and sweet meats.
