Seward County Community College/Area Technical School, Seward County Historical Museum and USD #480 are partnering to educate local intermediate grade students on Kansas History on Friday, Feb. 4.
Approximately 160 fourth graders will have the opportunity to visit the Coronado Museum to learn about Kansas history. The Sigma Chi Chi, SCCC/ATS Criminal Justice Club, volunteered to assist museum personnel with tours, stories about Kansas History and a Kansas Jeopardy game that will entertained and educated the students throughout the day.
After the program, students will receive promotional items to commemorate Kansas History. Students will also be challenged to participate in an essay competition entitled, ??What I learned about Kansas History ? . Some of the prizes for the winners of the essay competition include tickets to a college basketball game, t-shirts, pizzas and other memorabilia. The students will have one week after visiting the museum to submit their papers.
The program is a service-learning activity that is designed to educate all ages on Kansas history.
