Our 6th grade students had their Egypt Walk last Friday.
The students have been studying about Egypt and the made some kind of display or item that represented some of the things that they learned in this unit.
They had their items on display for parents and the other students to walk through the classrooms and see. The students did such a great job!
They really enjoy this unit.
Mrs. Johnson uses the drum to direct students for a dance warm up.Mrs. Cropper gets students moving at the beginning of a dance session.Students have been dancing as they learn this week at East Meadows Elementary. 3rd graders used dance and movement to introduce multiplication and how it relates to addition and groupings. 4th graders learned about abstraction. They used abstracted movement to express their opinions on whether or not going to a Haunted Houses is a good idea. 5th graders danced VERBS and ADVERBS. Can you happily explode, frantically reach, or dig deep like they did? 6th graders enriched their understanding of Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics as they created and presented their own Hieroglyphic messages through stillness and motion.
Second grade went on a field trip to the Provo River Trail and Jaker's Pumpkin Patch in Springville last Thursday. They had a great time learning about nature as they walked two miles along the river trail and looked for items on a scavenger hunt. Many of the students commented on how "Beautiful" it was up the canyon. They then traveled to Jaker's where they played in the corn, went through the haunted house, played on the hay, took a hayride, got to see and pet some fun animals (we think the baby Alpaca was the favorite). Students even got to pick their very own pumpkin. They decorated the pumpkins this weekend and those will be on display in the second grade hallway this week.
