Fourth graders, Natalie Spencer and Terrel Jasperson, are acting like super heroes as they help the presenters from The Living Planet Aquarium show students where water is found on the earth. Students learned all about the water cycle and how water is used in Utah through visual models, learning vocabulary words through movements, and answering questions. The students enjoyed having The Living Planet Aquarium presenters come to Goshen and share all their fun educational information!

During a presentation at Goshen Elementary, fourth graders learned a little bit about some of the Indian tribes that once lived in Utah. They learned some history and were excited to know that the presenters were real Indians. Students saw some of the clothing and things that were used by the Native American tribes. Students are now excited to learn more about the history of Utah. Pictured are the students learning hand signs that were used to help the tribes communicate with one another.
