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.
