4th graders studied the three land regions of Utah this week. Learning became hands-on as the students created the Great Basin, Rocky Mountain, and Colorado Plateau land regions and land forms using salt dough. We discovered that Utah county is a point where all three regions overlap, creating a place with diverse surroundings. 4th graders are discovering that Utah is a great place to live!
One of our favorite parts of 3rd grade is studying different cultures in our social studies unit. We love having parents come and share about different cultures they have experienced. One culture we learned about recently is Hawaii. We learned about the lifestyle in Hawaii and even got to see how they crack open coconuts. Now we're just wishing we could travel to Hawaii for a class field trip!
Mrs. Oman’s Class is learning about verbs. We watched Angry Birds and identified many of the verbs that the characters were doing in the clip. Then, we wrote sentences using past and present tense verbs about our own Angry Birds. Last, each child used a new medium in art - pastels- to create his/her angry bird character.
