Our sixth grade class had a blast at Clark Planetarium this year! They walked on the moon, visited Mars and went on a space roller-coaster. Students were able to explore and experience Science, hands-on, with the wonderful activities that Clark Planetarium offers. We had so much fun and are anxiously awaiting our next outing! WAY TO GO LEOPARDS!!
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!!
Larsen Elementary's second graders got a special treat when Maple Mountain High's football team stopped by to visit with the students and read a few books. The students had a great time reading with the players and visiting with them about school and being a football player. We appreciate Coach Burtenshaw and the MMHS's football players taking time to make a positive impact on our students.
What do kindergarten students love? To ride the school bus! What makes it even better? When the bus takes them to the Big Red Barn in Santaquin. Kindergarten students got to take a bus ride, and then ride in a big wagon to the apple orchards to pick their own apples. The day was completed by a run through the maze and an apple doughnut! What a great day! Way To Go Leopards!!!
The kindergarten classes at Larsen had a lot of special visitors on Friday, October 7, 2011. Grandparents, parents and friends came to kindergarten to hear a short program and eat lunch with the students. Grandparents from as far away as California, and as close as just down the street joined in the fun! Way To Go Leopards!!
Fifth grade students learned about Native Americans by creating a pyramid. Each student chose a tribe and then had to represent four different sections of that tribe, like where they lived, what they ate, arts and crafts, and other important information they could find. This activity is a lot of work for the students but the pyramids turned out amazing! Way To Go Leopards!
The fifth-graders at Larsen Elementary got to meet a real author, Janene Wolsey Baadsgaard. They participated in her wonderful presentation where they learned about the writing process and even helped her start writing a new story! The fifth graders learned about what it takes to be a real author and discovered that they all have the potential to be great authors themselves. Way To Go Leopards!
