FOUNTAIN GREEN— Fourth grade students at Fountain Green Elementary participated in an outreach program sponsored by the Uintah Springs Camp of Daughters of Utah Pioneers on May 17.
The program consisted of a day of activities to complement the Utah history curriculum the students were learning in class. The program was held in the Fountain Green Theater and Fountain Green Dance Hall. The students were divided into two groups, with the two groups taking turns at various activities.
One of the first activities was wool grower Annette Hansen and wool spinner JoAnn Jakins giving a brief history on raising sheep and wool production. The students also learned how wool is spun into yarn for fine to heavy fabrics.
The children also participated in a relics scavenger hunt. They excitedly searched for items such as a school slate, icebox and ice hook, pop bottle capper and crazy-quilted pillow top.
Loueda Jensen led the butter making segment, teaching children the process and then allowing them to make their own butter. She also led the students in pioneer stories and games.
The activities wrapped up with Susan Monsen teaching the students about the history of Fountain Green and serving refreshments of apple cider, crackers and butter, and ginger cookies.
