Presenters from Thanksgiving Point came to Canyon Elementary to involve the fourth-grade students in the Tulip Project.  There were two parts of this project.  The first part was learning about how tulips grow.  The students drew and dissected a tulip bulb as they discussed how weather and climate affected the growth of tulips and all plants.  For the second part, the students got to go out on our playground and plant approximately 100 tulip bulbs.  They had a great time, and are so excited to see if their tulips grow this spring!
