Culture Day continues in the 3rd grade! Before Thanksgiving break, all third graders were able to learn more about the country and culture of Saudi Arabia. Students learned about Saudia Arabia's geography, traditions, language, government, religion and more. Students especially enjoyed learning about the different types of clothing typically worn in Saudia Arabia and the tradition of sitting around a rug and eating Na'an bread. Third grade loves our culture days and we are so excited for all the upcoming presentations!
In 4th grade we have been studying about the three geographical regions of Utah. We learned about the Great Basin, the Colorado Plateau, and the Rocky Mountains. We then had the opportunity to make salt dough maps of Utah and paint them according to the three geographical regions. The students had a lot of fun and did a fantastic job!
Second graders got to learn about different holidays celebrated around the world! They learned about how England, Holland, Hawaii, Mexico and the Philippines celebrate Christmas and other holidays are celebrated . We asked a few of them what something they learned was:Sophie W. "In Holland they have wooden shoes."Sarah D. "In Mexico they do plays!"Jordan A. "In England they use pillowcases for their stockings."
