Cookie Mining

Mrs. Olson’s 4th graders are learning about the economy of Utah and did some cookie mining in Social Studies. The students earned class money for every chocolate chip mined and were able to purchase better equipment (paper clip) or additional cookies. We love Social Studies!

Second Graders Visit Harward Farms

Submitted by becky.manning on Mon, 04/17/2023 - 17:11

Second Graders recently had the opportunity to attend Farm Field Days at Harward Farms and had a blast! 

This field trip is a fun and engaging way to learn a lot about farming, nutrition, life cycles, animals, planting and growing crops, and more!  The second graders loved the baby animals and the talking tomato the most. A big thank you to Harward Farms for inviting us and to all of the amazing presenters.
