4th Grade Dino-Ramas

Attributions: 

The Fourth Graders went back in time last week and created some dino-ramas. They started by creating their dinosaurs' environments using construction paper and shoeboxes. They made volcanoes, trees, tar pits, and even nests. It was so fun being creative with construction paper! Next, they used salt dough to create all different dinosaurs from triceratops to stegosaurus. These were added to their environments and voila! We have loved learning about dinosaurs and fossils this year in fourth grade! 

Maple Mountain Football Players Read with Students

Larsen Elementary students had some special visitors from the Maple Mountain Football team come last week.  The players were able to answer questions about themselves and then read some books to the classes.  Thank you Maple Mountain Football for taking the time to come visit us.

5th Grade Study Native American Tribes

Attributions: 

Larsen 5th Graders have spent the first two weeks of school learning about Native American tribes across our country.  Some of the tribes that they have been studying about are Lakota, Blackfoot, Aztec, Chinook, Navajo, Sioux, Piaute, Mandon, Pueblo and Maya tribes.  Each student made a diarama about a certain tribe. On the four frames of the diarama they were to show things such as homes, celebrations, ceremonies, habitats, hunting practices and arts and crafts. Great job 5th Grade.
