Recently LHS students in Anthropology and Zoology took a field trip to the Natural History Museum of Utah. The Museum currently has a exhibit about the Ancient Maya Civilizations.

The Anthropology students interacted with the exhibit to better understand Mayan writing, social structures, technology, and political systems. 

Zoology students learned about Utah's unique ecosystems.

This mini-term, we are working on argumentation. Organizing an argument essay can be challening. To make it easier, Elinda uses the "Color-Coded Essay" method. It helps students see more vividly how an essay is put together. To practice, we put popsicle sticks in the right order based on that color scheme.

Cope's Menagerie

Submitted by chelsie.young on Thu, 01/10/2019 - 16:50

As Cope has taken on the mantle of Zoology instruction, so has he taken on the accoutrements. You know, critters! Let's meet some of his lil friends:

There are two parakeets. The green one goes by Buddy and the blue one is known as Maui.

He's also got a gecko named Nico, a chameleon named Oscar the Grouch (he likes to be left alone), a couple of fish named Corey and Vitamin, and has even been visited by a pair of snakes belonging to two of our students!

Our students love to interact with these animals almost as much as they love to interact with Cope!
