Cooking with Solar Ovens

Submitted by samantha.jasperson on Fri, 09/23/2016 - 13:24

On Monday, September 19 all the third grade classes learned about the sun's energy and how they use it for electricity. We got to experiment and make our own solar oven. Here comes the tricky part, we could only use 5 things a pizza box, tin foil,saran wrap, scissors and glue. We split up into partners and got to work. Wednesday, September 21 arrived, we took our solar ovens outside and set them down in the hot sun, we hoped for it to cook some delicious s’mores! We let them cook for about and we checked the temperature every 10 minutes. Finally, they were ready!

4th Grade Egg Dropping Contest

Submitted by samantha.jasperson on Fri, 09/23/2016 - 10:18

The egg dropping contest is a fun thing to do in class. You get to build a box and put things in the box to support the egg. The idea is to try to make the egg not break once you drop it off the building or something else.

HOW TO BUILD A BOX.

The first thing you need to do, is make a good base for the egg like a box or a bag,something you can put the egg in .(I put my egg in a box)

4th Grade Field Trip

Submitted by samantha.jasperson on Sun, 09/18/2016 - 21:39

The fourth graders went on a field trip to Camp Floyd State Park. There were six stations the students got to participate in, these stations were: candle making, loading older guns (no real black gun powder), adobe brick making, walking through the Inn, pony express training, and going in the school they used. A highlight about the Inn was someone cleaning the trigger of their gun while being loaded and shot through the wall. The field trip was very fun. My favorite parts were candle making and walking through the Inn. History is fun to learn when it's up close and personal!

Park View students gathered around the flag pole in the cool Fall air to be treated to a Constitution Day presentation by the officiers of the Patriotic Club from Salem Hills High School.  The students from SHHS  inspired the Park View Student Body to be proud Americans through music, raising of the flag, saying the pledge, reciting the Preamble and singing the National Anthem.  Mrs. Jensen, one of the school's Nebo Plus technicians said,  "It gave me chills to see all of the children saying the pledge and singing the National Anthem together.
