Besides seeing how snow is great for fun winter activities, the students learned that snow is vital to Utah’s economy. In fact, it is even called 'white gold.'

The 4th grade students at East Meadows once again started off the year making dinosaur dioramas.  This is part of their social studies unit.  They learn about different species of dinosaurs and their environments and diets.  They made the dioramas in shoe boxes.  Inside the box they created a scene that would depict what it looked like when dinosaurs roamed the earth. They used colored paper and play dough to make trees, mountains, water, and dinosaurs and anything else they could imagine to portray the scene.
