Third-grade students at Canyon Elementary had a combined field trip.  They hiked up Provo Canyon noticing the living and non-living plants and animals.  When they returned to school, representatives from BYU's Bean Life Science Museum brought living and non-living things from their outreach program to share with the students.

Students in grades K-6 at Canyon Elementary participate in the Ken Garff Road to Success Reading Program.  Boys and girls get incentives and prizes for making their reading goals each month.  To kick off a new year in the Ken Garff Reading Program, students were entertained with a Ken Garff magic show assembly and were reminded that reading is fun.

Tulip Project

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!

  Students in Mrs. Jenna Reid's second grade class learned what it's like to be a scientist.  They worked in groups to decide if the eggs they were given were raw or boiled.  They did experiments and made hypotheses.  Then they wrote the results of their experiments.  Each group got to share their hypotheses and then got to test them out by cracking their eggs outside to see if they were boiled or raw.
