Second grade students at Brookside learned about Pilgrims coming to America on the Mayflower.  We read books,discussed, and wrote about what they would need to take with them in a trunk.  As a culminating activity we went outside and drew the dimensions of the Mayflower.  Students were given beef jerky and dried apples to eat as they sat within the measurements of the ship.There was not much room, privacy, or variety of food for the 2 months aboard the ship.    We decided it was not a very fun trip.

On Thursday, a Springville Police Officer came to Brookside to tell us how to stay safe on Halloween, and a little bit about staying away from drugs. Each of the classes in the school chose a few questions that he could answer for us, and they were very good questions. A question that got asked a lot was, "How do you know if your candy is safe?" He told us to ask our parents if it would be safe before eating it. He told us to never go trick-or-treating alone, and to always watch for cars. It was a good learning experience for all of our students and it was very fun.
