Taylor fourth grade students in Mrs. Corbin, Mrs. Grill and Ms. Orme's classes recently visited historic Camp Floyd. Students took a step back in time and were able to experience life in the famous Utah military camp. Students spent the day making adobe bricks, dipping candles, attending pioneer school, riding in the pony express as well as going through artillery training. This is a fun way for students to see a piece of Utah history come alive! Everyone on site was dressed in character and students learned a lot from the stories told by them about the history of the military camp.
Taylor Elementary's April students of the month got to enjoy a fancy lunch of pizza and soda with Mr. Daybell.
