Fourth Grade Visits Salem City Cemetery

Submitted by dorie.thatcher on

Fourth graders walked up to the Salem City Cemetery last week to participate in several learning activities. Students used subtraction to solve and find how many years people lived, looked for people who had served in the military, and also tried to find the person who was born the earliest in history.  

Students observed the plants and animals that they saw, as well as the weather and clouds.  They also looked for unique designs on headstones and did pencil rubbings.

Community in the Past

2nd grade walked over to the Daughter's of the Utah Pioneer cabin.  We learned all about our community in the past.  We got to taste home churned butter and see lots of neat artifacts that children our age used to use.  It was a great learning experience

Using Chromebooks in the Classroom

Our school's digital coach, Mr. Crockett, spends his time teaching students and teachers fun and educational ways to use Chromebooks in the classroom.  He is visiting fourth grade classrooms and teaching students to use Google Slides to create a personalized Jack-o-Lantern.  Students then typed a short story to go with their Jack-o-Lantern.  While doing so, students practiced paragraph writing as well as worked on their revising and editing skills.  Definitely a fun and educational way to integrate technology in the classroom!
