From the Great Salt Lake to the powdery snow-covered mountains, the great state of Utah is a bit of an outdoor adventure wonderland and it also happens to be the next stop on our Explore: USA road trip.
Utah State Study
The Beehive state may be known for its excellent skiing and snowboarding destinations, and with an average of 500 inches of snow each year in parts of the state, it’s pretty easy to see why, but in this Utah state study, we’re going to see that Utah has so much more to offer than just winter sports!
For example, we’ll learn that Great Salt Lake is more than just a name and we’ll experiment to learn a little more about what that salt can do to freshwater.
We’ll learn that amazing ideas can happen anywhere, including a high school chemistry class, and we’ll even take a look at a pioneer in the world of video games.
The best part?
We’ll get to explore the 45th state from the comfort of our own homes!
