Fourth Grade Visits the Wetlands

Submitted by sara.stout on

      The fourth grade students at Barnett Elementary had an exciting learning opportunity recently at Salem Pond.  The students participated in a wide variety of activities to help them better understand the essential role of the wetlands for Utah’s environment. Students participated in a nature scavenger hunt, tested water samples, and played games that related to animal habitat and survival. They also drew and wrote about a specific scene at the pond. Students I  identified plants and animals that live and grow in a water environment.  Students enjoyed seeing a family of ducks, playing the game “OH Deer”, and  This was a great opportunity for students to see a familiar park in a new way.
