Explore the Prairie Museum's Educational Resources!
We are happy to collaborate with you to develop an activity or lesson plan catered to your curriculum needs.
School Field Trips
Students are able to engage in the subject matter much more effectively when given the opportunity to explore. Ask about our artifact collections, library resources and upcoming exhibitions that may be beneficial to you and your students.
Western Prairie Educational Site
Located on 10 acres south of the museum, the Western Prairie Educational Site is used to provide a natural habitat for wildlife and an area for schools to utilize as a resource. The site features native prairie grasses and wildflowers and also includes a water feature. Offering a historical view on the high plains landscape, the educational site would make the perfect venue for your upcoming lesson plan!
An educational trunk filled with artifacts and activities for elementary-aged students and youth groups is available to help your students learn about homesteading on the high plains.
