The 4th graders had the oppurtunity to visit the Alf Engen Ski Museum and Olympic Park near Park City, Utah on March 31.  The students were shown a video that gave a history of the area and how mining attributed to Park City's growth and that the skiing industry helped save that mining town from becoming a ghost town.  The students also got a review of the water cycle and how it effects us in Utah.  The students got to see many exhibits from the history of skiing to exhibits of 2002 Olympic medals and skiis that were used in World War II.  At the end of the tour the bus took us to the top of Olympic Park so we could get out and look at the start of the Bobsled track.  Who knows, maybe we have a future Winter Olympian in our midst.
