Larsen 1st grade classes had the opprotunity to visit the Bean Museum at BYU last week.  They learned about all kinds of animals, birds, insects, reptiles and sea life around the world.  It was interesting to see all their different kinds of habitats and food that the animals eat.  There was a live animal show and students at the end of it were able to touch a Ball Python.  It was one WILD field trip!

5th Grade State Fair

The Larsen 5th graders held their annual State Fair last week.  Each student is given a state to learn and tell about in preperation for the State Fair.  They make a travel brochure, shoe box trivia question, t-shirt design, dress up as a famous person from their particular state and give a presentation too about that person.   Each class as well as parents came and learned about all 50 states.  Well done 5th grade!!

The students at our school had a very exciting reading reward activity on Monday.  The fourth and sixth grade teachers were in charge and came up with some really fun challenges for the Larsen Reading Olympics.  The challenges were a potato sack race, three-legged race, egg toss, stick pull, balloon relay, cracker whistling,  egg on a spoon race, and put on a frozen t-shirt race.  It was so fun for everyone and a few people even had an egg break on them!  Thanks for all the fantastic reading that was done for the month of April!  Larsen students are real winners!!!
