UVU Roots of Knowledge Finding Home
Last year, the Finding Home field trip served over 2,000 kids between October 2022 and May 2023. Teachers and students provided incredibly positive feedback.
A 6th grade teacher from Indian Hills Elementary said, “I have taken my class on numerous field trips this year. This has been the best field trip we have been on. It connected to the social studies standards while incorporating language arts, social and emotional learning, and art standards. It was hands on and informative at the same time. My students were engaged in their learning in a way that not every program has offered us this year.”
The tour, art making activity, and school program packet are all rooted in Utah Core Standards. Finding Home Field Trip:
- Interactive tour of Roots of Knowledge – a mural of 80 stained glass windows, spanning 47 meters (154 feet) in length and almost 3 meters (9.6 feet) in height. It portrays a chronology of world history from the dawn of life on Earth to the present day, with slight projections into the near future.
- Art making activity centered around themes of home, community and belonging.
- New this year and optional – 60 minutes in the gallery for groups who want to explore and eat their lunch.
