The Museum of Natural History came from Salt Lake City to Canyon Elementary's fourth-grade classes and brought many different animal samples for the students to explore.  Students wrote down observations they made about the samples as well as questions they formed while making observations.  All four fourth-grade classes were involved.  Students learned a lot and had a great time.
