Know Your Mountain Men

The Utah Studies classes learned about Mountain Men and Explorers of Utah, by doing a speed learning activity. 

“Each student was assigned a Mountain Man or Explorer to ‘become’,” explained Ms. Terry.  “They learned about his life and accomplishments and then each student went to the other students to learn about each other.   It was a fun and active way to learn some interesting information about the mountain men and explorers who helped in the development of Utah.”

The Social Studies department at SFJH excels at creating engaging activities where students are able to apply what they are learning.  Thanks for sharing what your students are doing, Ms. Terry!
