    Students at Hobble Creek Elementary have been learning  about mapping, their community, science and technology through the art of dance from the professional dancers of Repertory Dance Theatre.   

    Hobble Creek Elementary fourth and second grade students performed the dances that they created under the direction of Repertory Dance Theatre dancers Lynne Larson and Chara Huckins at a culminating event Friday March 9.  The dances went along with science and social studies core curriculum such as habitat, erosion and weathering.  The dances also celebrated the resources that are in the Hobble Creeka school boundaries which lie in Springville and Mapleton and extend up Hobble Creek Canyon. Third and Fourth grade students conducted a survey which they used to map the data collected.  The maps were displayed on Friday. Sixth grade students used the survey results to create a movie about the gardeners of the community.  This information may be used in creating a school community garden. Second grade students have been studying the systems that are involved in bring food from the farm to the garden.  They made posters about the transportation systems.  The posters were also displayed.

     Hobble Creek has an art project grant from the Utah Division of Arts and Museums, formerly the Utah Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the arts.  The grant allows them to join into the Green Map Project which is an international effort to create perspective changing portraits of communities that act as practical guides for resident, tourists, decision makers and statisticians.  The Green Map System has spread to over 600 cities, towns and villages in 55 countries.  

      Repertory Dance Theatre is involved in the community providing  educational opportunities and striving  to increase an awareness of the art of modern dance.  The dance company has been involved in schools in the Salt Lake and Ogden area with the Green Map Project.  

         The information was used by the dancers and placed on student made maps and onto the online green map.  This is “place-based education which emphasizes creative exploration and the joyful realization of the ties that connect a person with nature and culture in their place.”(David Sobel)

Science Fair Winners

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 02/17/2012 - 14:04
We had approximately 115 students complete the project and about 43 students that wanted to be judged to see if they would be one of the 8 lucky winners who would advance to the District Science Fair.  We had projects ranging from product testing such as the best popcorn to buy, to what material is the best conductor of heat.  The students that passed to the district from my class were Rylie HInds and John Hagen.  Rylie experimented with the best cup to insulate your hot drink and John discovered how teeth react to certain products such as sugary drinks, milk and water to name a few.  We had parents walking away from the Science Fair saying they learned quite a bit from our incredibly intelligent 6th grade students, and I whole heartedly agree.  They did a super job!!

Repertory Dance Theatre came and taught the students of Hobble Creek about different bench marks of Science and Health through dance. The bench marks were pollution, recycling, water cycle, exercising, eating healthy and much more.  The students even got to dance with with the dancers.  The program started off with the 6th grade dance students doing their dance on the water cycle.  It was very informative and the students at Hobble Creek Elementary loved it!
