Minuteman Missile Education In Your Classroom!
Minuteman Missile NHS offers all western South Dakota schools the opportunity to have a ranger visit their classroom. The visit consists of a Powerpoint program about the history of Minuteman Missiles on the Great Plains and their role in the Cold War. Also, the park film - which includes an interview with a local rancher who had a Minuteman site placed on his property - is shown. To schedule a ranger visit to your class contact us or call ranger Butch Davis at 605-433-5552!
Each year more and more teachers are interested in using Minuteman Missile National Historic Site as a tool to help their students understand the Cold War and its influence on American History.
