Canyon Earthquake Display

Submitted by calleen.argyle on

   Canyon fifth-grade teachers made arrangements for an Earthquake Display to be set up at our school.  This display told students that Utah is "Earthquake Country" and large earthquakes are possible anywhere in Utah, especially along the Wasatch Front.  History shows that earthquakes strike every 350 years - the last one here was about 350 years ago.  This display of pictures, graphs and charts, gave students great information and a better understanding of earthquakes.

Canyon Second Grade Scientists

Submitted by calleen.argyle on

Mrs. Chantelle Oppie's second-grade students at Canyon Elementary are studying the physical properties of matter and how different materials respond to change. While working in groups, they wrote on posters their observations about the properties of some objects that they were given, such as tin foil, paper clips and pipe cleaners. Then they got to make some physical changes to the objects and they recorded their observations again, noting the changes. Students got to share their findings with the rest of the class.
