I have 23 fourth grade students. They have very different backgrounds and learning styles. Because their backgrounds are so different, I have students who read at a plethora of levels. They love to use technology. It gives students common ground with others and their technology experiences!
My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day.
They are excited to explore the world around them and create lasting memories.
My students need a visit from a real mountain man. As a fourth grade, we will gather together and listen to the presentation of the mountain man. He will speak to the group for about an hour. He will show them resources that mountain men use each day and demonstrate for them what their day-to-day life is like.
By providing students with a real life mountain man, they will remember the history of Utah in a way they wouldn't by just reading from a text.
The stories that he tells allow the students to take a step into the life of a mountain man.
