Fourth Graders were excited to have a real-life mountain man, Scott Sorenson visit us recently.  He kept us spell-bound as he told us tall tales as well as true stories about the adventures of real mountain men.
We also loved the animal calls he did for us and were excited to learn that we can call a chipmunk by wetting our hand and kissing it.  Believe me, we all had to try it.  We loved being able to stroke the furs he brought as well. WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!
