As a Utah 4th grade teacher, I have been very frustrated with the lack of reading resources related to Utah's science curriculum. Sure, there is a lot of information on the Internet, but it is always scattered and you have to go to several different pages to learn something useful about a particular plant or animal. Not to mention, many on-line articles use college-level language, incomprehensible for my students.

Therefore this summer, instead of basking in the sun, I have been researching Utah's plants and animals and writing informational articles about them. :-)
