5th graders at Sierra Bonita memorized the 50 states this year. They held a State Fair on Friday, May 18, to celebrate all they had learned. They each made a diorama to represent one of the 50 states. Members of the school community enjoyed visiting the State Fair and seeing all the hard work the students did.
As a fourth grade at Sierra Bonita, we had the opportunity to go on a field trip to This is the Place, in Salt Lake City. While we were there, we had the chance to visit a few different rotations to learn about Utah’s history. A few of the rotations that we went to while we were on our field trip were pioneer dancing, learning about pioneer schooling, as well as learning about real mountain men. The students had a great time learning a circle dance as a class. The students also enjoyed going to the pioneer schooling rotation because they were able to pretend they were really there by having to answer every question standing up, and having their arms placed nicely in front of them to show respect to their teacher. All of the presenters made the History of Utah come alive for the children. The students were able to learn new information and take Utah’s history home with them. The students really enjoyed this field trip and loved learning more about Utah and its past!
