Field Trips

At American Heritage of South Jordan, we believe that learning should be hands-on. Our teachers use manipulatives when teaching math, experiments when teaching science, and costumes or props when teaching history. While much of our lessons are taught in the classroom, there are times when we take the classroom outside or away from the school altogether. Field trips are an important part of learning. They allow for:

  • Cultural enrichment
  • Development of critical-thinking skills
  • Creation of historical empathy
  • Building of interest in art museums, music, and dance
  • Experimenting and exploration

Students of all ages and grades participate in field trips. We travel by foot, by bus, and some stay on campus. The following are just some of the field trips the students have experienced:
