Our Savior Lutheran Third Graders Travel to the Southwest

We were ready to go to the first stop in our trip tour of the Southwest Region, Monument Valley in Arizona.  We learned about the Navajo Indians and what a mesa was.  We also saw two kinds of rock that we just finished learning about in science:  shale and sandstone.  We were surprised to find out that movie makers used this very area to film some of the cowboy movies!  We were also surprised to find out that it was only 44 degrees outside here in Arizona.  We thought it would be much warmer.  Does anybody know why?

Stay tuned for more beautiful places as we travel through the Southwest Region.
