Animal Science classes got to learn about the importance of therapy animals. Mini horses can be therapy animals with lots and lots of training. Ever After Mini's brought two of their therapy horses to class today.  Students learned about care and training of a therapy horse, they learned about horse behavior and benefits of a therapy animal.  Horses are for people with memory loss.  Often times people make connections with them if they have ever owned a horse before.

Mrs. Brockbank’s class was assigned to make a project that represented a book that they liked. Some of the ideas for projects consisted of comic strips, stories, a coat of arms, and more. These projects were meant to represent either the main characters in a book, or something like a big event that happened in a book, or just to give a short summary to get people hooked on a good book. The projects were a lot of fun and everyone enjoyed being creative and working on a fun project.

Emily Wessman is a writer. When she heard about the opportunity to submit a poem to UVU's Write Outside Yourself Journal, she submitted a poem called "Illuminate the Forgotten." This beautifully written poem met the criteria of "Tales Throughout TIme," "exploring or reinventing different eras in history or presenting possible futures."

 Emily's poem was one of only two accepted for publication. Middle and high school students from across the state of Utah were all invited to submit, so this is a great honor for Emily to have her poem selected to be published.

Mrs. Kelly’s FACS students were given an opportunity in their child development unit to see preschoolers learn. She separated them into seven groups. Each group was then assigned a topic that corresponded with the things they were learning about; the activity they planned was based on that topic. The greeting group made bunny shaped name tags. The large motor group’s activity was a bean bag toss. The small motor group let the preschoolers play with Play Dough. The snack group made little crabs with crackers, pretzel sticks, and cheese.

On April 13 Ms. Warren’s class looked at strawberry DNA. It was a part of learning about Watson and Crick and their discovery of DNA. We learned why it would be important to know this in agriculture, specifically when we were learning about plant, animal, and soil scientists. “It was so cool! I loved being able to see the DNA strands,” a student said. Others agreed that the DNA strands were interesting and fun to see. “It was interesting with a strawberry. What do you think would happen if I tried this with an orange!” a student mentioned.
