Take your students back in time to 1918 Denver when World War I, the Spanish Flu, and Women’s Suffrage dominated the newspaper headlines. In the 1918 field trip, students explore these themes and everyday life in 1918 Denver with our historically preserved house museum. Students navigate historic spaces with inquiry-based exploration, investigate related primary sources, see demonstrations of everyday hands-on artifacts and learn about the biographies of the historic residents and other significant Colorado women. While this program is designed for students in grades 2nd through 5th, 1918 can be tailored for students of all ages.
In-Person Field Trips are available in the morning Tuesday-Thursday with a start time of 9:30 am and in the afternoon with a start time of 12:30 pm or later. Virtual tours have start time flexibility depending on the day.
If your group is larger than 30 students, they will need to be divided across two or more days or one time slot in the morning and one in the afternoon on the same day.
If the trip is canceled due to inclement weather, schools will be given the opportunity to reschedule if possible or the payment will be returned in full.
