Waldorf fourth graders tour historic Niwot
October 5, 2018
Kelly Morrow and her fourth graders from Boulder Valley Waldorf School pose with a Certificate of Appreciation for visiting historic Niwot with the Niwot Historical Society on Sept. 26.
More than a dozen students joined the walking tour, which started at Whistle Stop Park and headed east on Second Avenue. Because there are older post office boxes in the museum, the tour stopped into the Niwot post office to see the post office boxes used today. While visiting, USPS clerk Martha talked to the students about geography and how mail comes to Niwot and is shipped around the world from Niwot. The students became engaged and were asking about many countries.
The tour then proceeded to the Niwot Historic District on Second Avenue and ended at the Firehouse Museum.
Back in class, the students received a package of Niwot Historical Society Coloring and Activity Pages talong with a quiz sheet. The BVWS will also receive two copies of "Niwot, Colorado, Echoes From A Railroad Town" by Anne Dyni for the school library.
