While At The Park - Self Guided
The following activities are availabe as self-guided activities at the site. Answers to the scavenger hunt are found at various buildings throughout the site. Answers to the history hunt are found in the museum.
If you choose to have your group participate in one of these activities, we have clipboards available for students to use while filling in answers. Please inform us in advance how many students you will have, so that we can have clipboards available at the visitor center. No more than 40 at a time.
Please make copies in advance for your students to use and make sure students bring their own pencils. Advise students to write on clipboards only and avoid making stray marks on walls or exhibits.
Once your visit has been completed, teachers may request that answer sheets be emailed to them.
For more information, contact the education coordinator via email or call 620-223-0310.
Did You Know?
Fort Scott never did have a wall around it. It was built upon a bluff which had three steep sides and opened up to prairie in a gradual slope on the south. Many forts were not built with walls at the time; the fort with a stockade is more a product of Hollywood mythology than actual fact.
