Submitted by david.thacker on Wed, 10/26/2016 - 16:21

Seventh-graders from Mrs. Harmer and Ms. Terry's classes got to go to This Is The Place Heritage Park today.

Students learn about the lifestyles of mountain men and Native Americans.  They also saw demonstrations on skills need by the Utah pioneers like tanning leather.  They even learned about the trans-continental railroad.

Later in the year, students will visit the Great Salt Lake and Antelope Island.

Field trips help make learning authentic.  Thanks Mrs. Harmer and Ms. Terry for planning learning activities that engage students.

Mrs. Shea Harmer and Ms. Lois Terry’s 7th and 8th grade Social Studies students recently had the opportunity to learn about the contributions made by Native Americans to the United States and our lifestyle.

During a presentation by Eileen Quintana and Brenda Beyal of the Nebo School District Indian Education program, students learned about the history of Native Americans and their impact on history.  They were also able to examine artifacts Quintana and Beyal brought with them.
