Symbols of America

In Social Studies, the fifth graders have been learning about the Constitution and the symbols of America.  We decided to combine the two and create an art project. With the help from our GAINS art specialist, Mrs. Christine Palmer, we took a copy of the Constitution and drew a symbol as a background.  Some of the symbols that we talked about were the Statue of Liberty, the American Flag, Uncle Sam, the Bald Eagle, and the Liberty Bell. The student sketched out the symbol of their choice then they used a sharpie to outline their shape.  Finally, students colored their pictures using colored pencils. This was a fun Art/Social Studies project that the students enjoyed completing.

During this week of celebration 4th graders continue to learn more about the Native Americans. We spent some time with GAINS specialist, Christine Palmer, learning about totem poles in the Pacific Northwest. Students spent time researching some of the sacred and symbolic carvings found on these wooden masterpieces. Based on their research they then chose and created their own totem pole to represented their family.

Native American Studies

Monday Brookside 4th graders had the privilege of a visit from Mrs. Begay and Mrs. Billie with the Title VI Program. We learned how to communicate/sing with our hands and found out that not only democracy, but many of the words and foods we use have a Native American influence. Students loved it and we are ready to start studying Utah's Native American tribes. Thanks for sharing your heritage with us!

Third grade cereal arrays! Students in Miss White’s class had a blast building multiplication arrays using fruit loops and Cookie Crisp cereal on Friday! What a “cereal-sly” fun (and delicious) way to end the week!

We welcomed some Title VI and Cultural Envoy dancers to our school yesterday. They performed several dances from many different Native American tribes. Students were mesmerized by their costumes, music, and dances. All who attended gained a greater appreciate for the rich heritage of the Native American people. One of the highlights of the performance was watching Brookside Tiger, Ailee K. perform the butterfly dance. Thank you Ailee and all those who shared their talents with us!
