Brigham Young University’s Bean Museum made a special visit to the fourth grade on November 17, to share some information about Utah’s plants and animals. The fourth grade learned about 3 major ecosystems in Utah, and some of the plants and animals both dead and alive that lived in each one. They were able to see a live Pac-man Frog, and they learned about how it can breathe through its skin. They also saw a Bearded Dragon, which is a lizard that lives in Australia. Each student even got to touch the lizard’s scaly back! They left the scariest for the last, they brought out a real-life snake! Some students even got the opportunity to hold the snake for a picture. The fourth graders had a lot of fun learning about all of the different animals, and give a big “thanks” to the Bean Museum for sharing their animals with us!
