Our 5th graders put together projects to show what it was like to live as a Native American. Their displays included 3D homes, hunting habits, food, and landscaping. Each project depicted one of ten different tribes from all over North and Central America. Some of those tribes include the Navajos, Hopis, Aztecs, Mayans, etc.
Larsen 3rd graders had an awesome experience at the Curiosity Museum at Thanksgiving Point. There are five main exhibit areas: Rainforest, Water Works, Kidopolis, Discovery Garden and Traveling Exhibits. Students learned many interesting facts and had a great time finding their way through the Rainforest.

It was fun to have some of the MMHS football players come and read with classes at Larsen Elmentary. Most of the players that came had even attended our school and visited their old classrooms and teachers. We appreciate them taking time to read with our students! Go Eagles!
Fifth grade gathered around Eileen Quintana as she educated us about the traditions of many indigenous Native American tribes from Utah. She opened with a typical Navajo greeting, told in her native tongue, and impressed the kids with the sounds and the translation of her heritage. The students learned that there are five indigenous tribes in Utah, and that they all speak languages that are very different from one another. She also showed them many of the things that Navajos (and other tribes) use to take care of their young children.
