The Culbertson eighth grade class took their annual tour of Montana April 28 - May 1. Every year, the eighth-grade is able to tour the state and go beyond the classroom to learn more about Montana. Through this trip, the students are able to see and experience first hand the many historical and cultural places Montana has to offer.
The eighth-graders toured the Little Big Horn Battlefield, swam at Chico Hot Springs and spent the first night in Livingston Tuesday, April 28.
The next day, they toured the campus of MSU - Bozeman and visited Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park.
Day three was spent in Helena touring the Montana Capitol building and Montana State Supreme Court. From these two visits, the eighth-graders leaned more about the workings of Montana state government. At the Montana Supreme Court the students also got to visit Justice Jim Rice’s office. In Helena, the students visited Spring Lake Meadows State Park where they learned to identify and count different species of birds, learned about mountain lions and experienced  archery first hand at a shooting range.
The final day was spent in Great Falls with a morning visit to Black Eagle and Rainbow Falls which are two of the great falls of the Missouri River portaged by Lewis and Clark in 1805.
The final stop was in Havre at Havre Beneath the Streets, more commonly known as the underground city.
