This is the Place Field Trip
Evan and I got to go on a field trip with the Third Graders at Sunrise Elementary to the This is the Place Heritage Park. We had a lot of fun even though it was freezing cold that day. We had a little excitement to start out the day when our partner bus broke down. Luckily we were only delayed about thirty minutes because of the incident. We were able to see some really neat things on our field trip. First we rode a train around the park taking a general tour of the buildings and artifacts that exist on the property. Our second stop was a lot of fun, we identified animal prints. Our third stop was all about animal pelts. We learned how to tan a skin and we learned how to identify all types of native animals in Utah. Evan got to hold up the coyote pelt. The last stop for us was to the Native American village part of the park. We learned about some of the Native peoples of Utah, the way they lived and traditions that are still alive today.
