One of the best ways to get students excited about Wyoming history is to get them out of the classroom to visit a historical site or museum. Chugwater High School students’ had the opportunity to visit the Buffalo Bill Center of the West museum in Cody, Wyoming that created a lifetime of memories. Students need not go out of Wyoming to learn about our rich American history, there are numerous historical destinations you can visit all across Wyoming.  Legend Rock, Medicine Wheel, Heart Mountain Interpretive Center, Meeteetse Museum and Buffalo Bill’s Museum have all enriched our students understanding of our nation and state heritage. Our extraordinary art museums, archaeology sites, nature history museums, and communities’ museums, as well as learning about state and national historical sites as primary resources which also provide exciting and entertaining experiences for students that will enhance their understanding of America’s history and culture. It was expressed to me numerous times how great our students are, and how respectful and well-mannered.
