Field Trip

Submitted by susan.bird on Thu, 09/22/2022 - 08:36

Our fourth graders visited Springville Power Plant on a field trip. We were able to tour the plant and learn about electricity and safety. 

We toured the engine room and learned about what makes the engines run and kinds of things they do to keep these big engines and generators running. We also toured the control room to see how they keep track of everything.

Edible Utah Maps

Submitted by susan.bird on Wed, 09/21/2022 - 08:10

Miss Bird's Fourth Graders have been learning about maps.  Their focus has been on Utah and they have been learning about the different features of Utah, mountains, lakes, rivers, plateaus and deserts.  To bring this unit together, the student created a paper map of Utah adding some of the major landforms in Utah.  Then, they created an edible map out of graham crackers, frosting, chocolate chips and licorice.  The students had fun creating their maps and then eating them.

Our fifth graders took a field trip to Camp Floyd to learn about life at the military fort during the civil war. The students attended school to see how kids learned during that time.  They also learned how to make candles, adobe bricks and to shoot a musket.  They had relay races as the Pony Express and visited a hotel and the museum.  Student's learn some unique history about the Civil War and the army that was stationed in Utah.

Artwork

It is fun to see the halls come alive with artwork.  Every grade has a favorite back to school art project that decorates our schools.  Mrs. Tolley, our art teach, taught the kids how to paint using bubble wrap.  They created a hive and added a bee, reminding the students to "Bee Your Best".  We had kindergarteners gluing dots on their names, Mrs.  Hall's class coloring and gluing information about them.  First graders colored rainbows to represent themselves.  Third, fourth and fifth graders created a variety of self-portraits.  It is so fun to see the bright and colorful hallways.
