Sixth Grade Field Trip a Huge Success

Submitted by sherri.peterson on Fri, 09/27/2019 - 10:25

Our sixth graders had a blast on their field trip.  They learned about the different Utah County Enforcement Divisions.  They were taught about the Bomb Squad, Search and Rescue, Fire, Swat and K-9 divisions.  Before heading back to school, they enjoyed a fun picnic at North Park.   We are grateful for all those who work for the county that took time out of their day to teach them so much!

Kindergarten students have been learning 2-D shapes in Math.  For our math lesson today we identified our 2-D shapes squares, rectangles, circles, and triangles.  Next we used those shapes to build a house.  Then the very best part of our lesson....we got to eat our 2-D shape houses.    Yummy

Mrs. Stewart's class is continuing to learn about the scientific process. Today we did an experiment going through all the steps of the process. Each student wrote a question and made a hypothesis. Then they did their experiment. Today’s experiment was what would happen to gummy bears when put into different
Liquids: vinegar, water, baking soda water and salt water. The students were surprised by the results and had a blast experimenting and observing. We love science in third grade !

Little Scientists Study and Act Out Scientific Process

Submitted by sherri.peterson on Wed, 09/25/2019 - 11:15

We have been talking about the scientific process in third grade. Today we learned about a scientist, Thomas Edison and machines. Our whole class got to work together in groups with Ben Sansom, our GAINS Drama Specialist, and create a machine that they acted out for the class to guess what their machine did. We had so much fun acting out how each of Thomas Edison’s inventions worked.
