In fourth grade, students study Utah history in Social Studies. Every year they get to go to This is the Place State Park to learn about the pioneers. Those pioneers trekked 1100 miles to Utah in search of a new life and new opportunities. Recently students had a great time visiting the park and got to learn all about what life was like during pioneer times. They learned about different jobs that people had, how they traveled, and even got to try their hand at panning for gold!
