Experts Share Knowledge About Counties in Utah

Asking a fourth grade expert what is the coolest thing about the county they researched was a great way to learn interesting facts about Utah!  Students have learned about counties as they have worked on a mapping unit, wrote reports at school, and learned to research on the internet and create a google slide presentation.  Parents also joined in the learning by helping students create a display about their county.  What do you call a day where parents come and ask students what they have learned and look at a display of their work?

There are 'villians' that can ruin our local supply of drinking water!  However, the good news is we can beat them if we are smart.  Jenny Devlin, from Utah Storm Water Coalition taught Mt. Loafers students ways they can stop the villians from ruining our local water supply.  Each student went home with a raindrop, workbook, and pencil to help them remember the importance of being a responsible 'water' citizen!  Thank you Mrs. Devlin!
