Tuesday, November 27, Mr. Phillip Evans, a representative from Discovery Gateway, visited the fifth-grade students at Brockbank Elementary. The students enjoyed a fun science lesson on chemical and physical changes. After a demostration from Mr Evans, the students were then able to conduct their own chemical reations. It was a very fun way to learn!
The sixth-graders at Brockbank Elementary recently went to BYU for their field trip. Their first stop was at the BYU Planetarium where they learned how to find constellations in the night sky (the dome is used to make it more realistic). Their next stop was at the BYU Art Museum where the students ate lunch. After they ate they entered the museum where they learned about 3D art and ancient civilizations. Their third and final stop was arriving back safely at Brockbank. It was a fun field trip!
Brockbank first-graders recently finished reading the book, "Turkey Trouble" written by Wendi J. Silvano. In the story a turkey is in trouble, bad trouble, it is almost Thanksgiving and he is the main course. Farmer Jake is looking for him. Turkey has an idea what if he doesn't look like a turkey? What if he looks like another animal instead? First-graders then got to use their imaginations and pick a disguise for Turkey so Farmer Jake won't recognize him.
November 20, 2012, Brockbank kindergarten students celebrated Thanksgiving by having their annual Thanksgiving Feast. Each student has a specific job to do to help put the meal together and they learn the importance of working together. The students really enjoyed eating a meal that they helped to make!
Brockbank Elementary is happy to share some fun ways on "How to Cook a Turkey" according to second graders. Students had a creative writing assignment which lets the students use their imagination with no prompting from the teacher as far as content, they are able to write their own ideas. Below is some ideas of "How to Cook a Turkey" by Brockbank second grade students in their writing:
