Hard working 5th graders at Salem Elementary were on station and ready to come to life to present their annual “Night at the Museum” for parents and the community.

Submitted by dorie.thatcher on

Fourth graders have been learning that the history of Utah has been shaped by many diverse people, events, challenges, and ideas. People came to the land now known as Utah for many reasons, and from many different places around the world. The story of Utah includes Native Americans.  

After studying about Utah's native tribes, students enjoyed a Native American presentation where they were able to see first hand some of their customs and traditions.

As a culminating activity, students made looms to weave a belt of their own.
