What's Happening-April 19, 2019

4th grade      4th grade 2

Beautiful, breathtaking, and majestic are just a few words used to describe Utah Biomes or Ecosystems. The 4th grade students at Old Mill Elementary have been learning about Utah Ecosystems, or plants and animals that occupy a distinct region. Deserts, wetlands, and forests are the most common Biomes found in Utah. As part of this science core subject area, students had the opportunity to have an indoor field trip brought to them. 

An instructor, from the Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum, came to our 4th grade and presented an engaging, hands-on learning experience. Students were able to learn firsthand about animal adaptations and how these animals use their physical traits and behaviors to fit into their habitat or environment. Students were able to see and touch various kinds of amphibians and reptiles. Thanks to the Bean Museum for a wonderful learning opportunity.

Registration for summer school is available at www.wasatch.edu or at the school office.  Classes run Monday through Thursday from 9:00 AM to noon at Heber Valley Elementary.  A courtesy bus stops at each elementary school for pickup and drop off.
