For the last couple weeks, 6th grade has been learning about the importance of taking care of our lungs from repository students at UVU. Two weeks ago 6th grade got to actually see and touch a healthy lung and an unhealthy lung. The students from UVU talked about what we can do to keep our lungs healthy by avoiding things like smoking. Today, the UVU students came back and the 6th grade students got to dissect a lung, heart, esophagus, trachea, and liver. They got to locate arteries and veins and learn about their purpose inside the body.

We have been learning about energy transfer in fourth grade. This week we investigated heat transfer by experimenting with the effects of speed, time and pressure on the movement of two objects. The students learned that the more speed, heat and pressure that is put into a system the more heat that is produced. We really are enjoying science this year by focusing on different phenomenon!
So far this year PE has been interesting, challenging and different but as always full of fun. The kids have been champs! We’ve had hot weather, smoke filled sky’s and lots of sunshine. The kids have been good sports and have embraced our new situation. It’s been fun to see how well kids adapt to change and how change can be good for all of us sometimes. We’ve played a variety of games, some new games and some old favorites with new twists. Star Wars frisbee, guardians of the galaxy, Spongebob tag, pickle ball and an outdoor circuit training Obstacle course to name a few.
