On Wednesday March 15, 2017, the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium's "Utah Waters Van" visited Art City Elementary fourth-grade classes.  Sylvia and Maverik taught the students, and had them guessing by feel, the different types of animals and environments that Utah has.  The students had the opportunity to meet a few of the animals that habitat in the Utah water ways, as well as learn about different plants that help clean our waters, and how soil acts like a sponge to help control flooding. "The Utah Waters Van is an educational Outreach program offered by Loveland Living Planet Aquarium to 4th grade students throughout Utah. The content of our presentations is specifically designed to correlate with the Utah State Office of Education’s Science Core Curriculum. Presenters guide students as they learn about the water cycle, wetland ecosystems, and water conservation using demonstrations, experiments, and live animals".(Quote taken directly from the website http://thelivingplanet.com/learn/).
