We just celebrated our Window's to the Wasatch Expedition.  We really enjoyed sharing our learning of what lives on the mountains, mineral identification, our rock collections and the stories that we wrote about one rocks journey through the rock cycle. 

We are looking forward to beginning the study of the Transcontinental Railroad and the people who were impacted by its construction.   We will start our study with focusing in on Westward 
expansion, the Pony Express, Early railroads and Steam Engines.  All of these lead our nation in the direction to be ready to build and "need" a Transcontinental Railroad.
