The BYU Folk Dancers came to Art City Elementary Friday May 7th and shared their show "Folk dance: From Village to Stage." This show was a snippet of all the wonderful places, people and cultures that are out there in this big wide world. Music and dance is one of their favorite ways to explore and share culture traditions. One message they hope to share: "The world has its share of problems,lets try to strive to be part of the solution and hope for tomorrow. Together we can make a difference." (Quoted from a letter of appreciation by Delynne Peay, Artistic Director)
Art City Elementary Fourth grade had a science fair on Friday April 16th. The young scientists discovered "germs" on keyboards, play ground equipment and doors. One student discovered that when you microwave soap it creates quite a foam that hardens when cooled. Some students tested theories of how to germinate seeds and some checked to see what plants liked to drink, if they prefered soda or water. "Is Celery dead or alive after it is cut?" "What produced electricity?" and "Will potatoes grow toward the light"? Thank you Fourth grade for sharing your knowledge with us.
