Tulips Journey North
Tulips Journey North is an outreach program for 3rd grade public schools in the State of Utah. Our staff will come to your classroom and present a 60-minute program of hands-on activities centered on understanding life cycles, seasonal change and an investigation of climate change. We will be presenting this program in a format designed to support your classroom with the new SEEd standards using inquiry-based learning.
The Tulips Journey North Program tracks the arrival of spring by observing growth of student tulips and comparing the student’s own results with students across North America.
All outreach students will have the opportunity to engage in the scientific process - observing, asking questions, recording, developing models, collecting data about tulip growth and sharing the results of their data collection. If you choose, an additional add-on citizen scientist program activity is included where students will plant tulip bulbs in their school garden. For more information about the citizen science portion of this program, visit the Tulips Journey North website at journeynorth.org/tulips
Thanks to sponsorship from the Utah State Office of Education’s informal Science Education Enhancement (iSEE), Tulips Journey North is FREE to every public 3rd grade classroom in Utah! While time and travel will not allow Thanksgiving Point to visit every school each year, teachers can expect in-person visits from us every three years. To find your visit year, click HERE.
