Fifth Grade Earthquake Cakes

Submitted by angie.keisel on

Miss Ledingham's class has also been studying earthquakes.  We learned about tectonic plates and how they move and change the earth's surface.  If they move towards each other they form a mountain.  We also learned that when the plates rub against each other buildings can fall.  And if they separate a rift is created in the ground.  After we learned about what causes earthquakes we made cakes that we quaked them in four different ways.  It was very fun!!

Fifth Grade Volcano Science Project

Submitted by angie.keisel on

Miss Ledingham's class has been studying volcanoes.  There are three types of volcanoes and they are shield volcanoes, cone volcanoes and the strato/composite volcanoes.  We were sorted into 6 groups.  Two groups did the shield volcano, two did the cinder cone volcano and two did the strato volcano.  We made presentation slides and volcanoes out of clay.  Finally we went into a first grade class to present our slides and explode the volcanoes. It was really cool to see how each one exploded!

6th Grade Diamond Fork Field Trip

Submitted by angie.keisel on

On Friday, September 11, 6th grade went on a field trip to Diamond Fork Canyon.  One of the games we played was the ¨A¨ game. This was a teamwork game. There were ropes attached to a giant letter A.  We got in a circle and people grabbed the ropes and pulled the letter A up.  The object of the game was to get the water without touching the ground.

6th Grade Hot Air Balloons

Submitted by angie.keisel on

A few days ago Mrs. James and Mr. M’s class made hot air balloons for science.  Some of them were a success, others were not. Some went very far, to the train tracks! Others only went a couple of feet. Most of them went really high like over the school! Some only went high like over the fence.  Some of the balloons had a great shape but others not. We found out that the best shape was a light bulb shape and the rectangular prism shape. The rectangular prism one went to the train tracks. All the kids had a great time and enjoyed flying them over and over again.

Family Movie Night

Submitted by angie.keisel on

To say thank you to our wonderful and supportive parents, the school held a family movie night on Friday, September 11, 2015.  Students and their families were invited to the school to enjoy an outside movie on the ‘big screen’.  The lawn filled up quickly with blankets, chairs, excitement and laughter.  Popcorn was gobbled, books were given away, water bottles were chilled, and delicious fry bread was served (talk about a long line!).  It was so fun to see parents from our community with their families (and even teachers with their families) come together to kick off th
