   Students from Canyon Elementary participated in the annual Fourth-Grade Map Walk.  After learning about Utah's mountains, lakes, rivers, and deserts, students created their own map of Utah out of cakes, play dough, wood, flowers, fabric, puzzles, and so much more.  These maps were proudly displayed for teachers, parents, and other students.
