Our 4th grade classes enjoyed visiting the past at the pioneer village at This is the Place Monument park. We had a train tour of the village, learned about the Pony Express, pushed/pulled handcarts, and learned about the one room school that was part of every early Utah pioneer child’s experience. Lunch in the cool sun, lots of walking and fun on a modern playground filled the day between hour long bus ride up and back. Everyone kept saying “this is the BEST field trip!”
3rd graders spent some time learning about habitats and how people will sometimes modify and adapt an environment to live there or will modify and adapt how they live to an environment. 3rds were given a ‘never before explored environment’ and were tasked with creating how they would modify and adapt the environment to live there. They were very creative and came up with great solutions to various problems.
Way to go Mustangs!
Learning about Utah's Heritage
Fourth graders were able to go on a Field Trip to This is the Place Heritage Park this week. They learned about pioneer travel, saw historic buildings, and discovered how Utahns once lived. We took a train tour, learned about the Pony Express, we also experienced school in a one-room schoolhouse, and even got to pull our own handcarts. Mrs. Anderson's 4th-grade class loved this experience and can't wait to learn more about Utah's Heritage!
