Visiting Professor in Sixth Grade

Attributions: 

On Tuesday several sixth grade classes at Westside were fortunate to have a guest lecturer, Dr. Allphin, a professor at Brigham Young University, come and present about ecology. One of the sixth grade science strands is ecosystems, so hearing from Dr. Allphin was the perfect segue into the new unit. The students learned about ecological relationships, the food chain, and the role the environment plays in the food chain.
