February 22, 2013, the fifth-grade students from Canyon Elementary participated in their annual Wax Museum of United States Presidents and Wives. Each student researched the president or president's wife that they were representing and prepared a short speech with interesting facts to share about that person. Each fifth-grade classroom was set up as a wax museum so students from all of the other classes in the school could attend. The fifth-grade teachers acted as tour guides and would press the buttons on the desks bringing the figures to life.
February 7, 2013, Canyon Elementary held its annual science fair. Anyone in 5th and 6th grade could participate either individually or as a team. There was an interesting group of projects this year. Audrie Nordstrom's project title was "How Does Candy Effect Our Minds and Bodies?", Jamison Massey's was "Pop Rocks Pop", Bailey Whiethead and Sami Branch did "Fungus Infection", Breanna Snider's was "Snow or Ice", Nick VanPelt, Kade Randloph and Jace Randolph did "Float or Sink", Boston Brower did "Walking on Egg Shells", Tessa Clayton did "What Bird Seed Do Birds Like Best?", Dustin
After Canyon fourth-grade students studied about mountain men and famous explorers, they invited a real mountain man to school to talk to them. Scott Sorenson shared how mountain men live, they many different animals a mountain man encounters, how mountain men entertained themselves, famous mountain men, and he even shared some tall tales. The next day the students participated in their annual 4th Grade Mountain Man Rendezvous and Bartering Bash. They had a great time!
