In school field trip from the Natural History Museum

Today we had the Natural History Museum come to our school and teach the 4th grade about fossils. We loved observing the fossils and writing down our observations. It was fun being a scientist for a day!

Learning about Erosion from Paul Nance

We absolutely loved having Paul Nance come and teach us about erosion for two days. It was fun and we loved the science experiments that we did. I hope each of you had the chance to have your child explain to you what they brought home and what they learned. If you did not ask them about it!

Christmas Book Report

The 2nd grade students absolutely loved having the 4th grade students read to them. They loved the puppets and candy canes they received. They were so excited. Here are some pictures of them sharing their stories!

Loveland Planet Aquarium

Yesterday, we had the Loveland Plant Aquarium come to the school and do an in school field trip. It was a blast. We learned about the wetland environment, which was perfect because that is what we are learning in class right now. The students first started off with a game where they either had to look at a picture and guess the animal that lives in the Utah wetland. It was easy on some pictures and harder on the Beaver's tail - - everyone thought it was a snake:) Then they had to listen to a sound and guess the animal or put their hand in a mystery box and figure out what it was in the mystery box. They had to use a lot of describing words to help their classmates guess with was inside the box. It was fun to see what they guessed for cattail, snake skin, and soil. It was fun to hear them describe them! The best part though was watching them cringe to put their hand in the box:)
Then they got to talk about adaptations and how some animals need certain things to survive. They also got to talk about the three biomes in Utah and how much of Utah is the wetland biome (less then 1% and that  80% of our animals here in Utah need the wetland environment). Then they got to see some amphibians (toad and tiger salamander)! Then they got to observe a wetland environment and see what happens if we do not have the wetland to help our environment. They also got to see what happens if we pollute our water. At the end of the presentation they got to see a King Snake and a Gopher Snake. They actually got to touch the snakes and it was fun to watch who was scared of touching it and who was so excited to touch it.
Here are some photos for you to enjoy!
