Elementary Education

The Governor’s Residence is in a unique and central position to share Colorado history, highlight the heritage of Colorado peoples, showcase Colorado culture, and provide lessons in history, leadership and civics.  We serve more than 3,000 students every year.

The Elementary Education program focuses on classes for children who study Colorado History in the 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade. We offer a standards-based program, “How Colorado became a State”, that includes an intimate tour of the Residence and presents Colorado history from the point of view of the state’s leaders, past and present. We also provide Colorado’s social study educators with an interactive timeline for use as a classroom resource.

Elementary Education programs are conducted in the spring and fall. To register for a one and a half hour program please complete the booking inquiry form below.
