Who Wants To Be An Opera Star?

Submitted by alyssa.mathis on Wed, 10/29/2014 - 13:32

The Utah Opera performed for Riverview Students.  The opera performers had a game show called “Who Wants To Be An Opera Star.” The game show introduced students to the opera world.  Students learned about opera terms including an aria, duet, tutti, props, and costumes.  Students were able to listen and identify soprano, mezzo soprano, and tenor voices.  They performed songs with great emotion and the students were able to identify the emotion.  This was a fun way to learn more about opera.  Thank you Utah Opera!

The first grade classes had the opportunity to watch and observe the life cycle of a butterfly. They observed the caterpillars' behavior and the making of a chrysalis. They loved watching the butterflies emerge from their chrysalis. The butterflies were beautiful. Some butterflies even came back to play!

The 4th grade classes at Riverview were able to demonstrate their understanding of the scientific method by building their own project to keep their raw egg from cracking after being dropped off the roof of the school. The students enjoyed watching their eggs fall from the roof to see if they would survive.
