BHS 22-23 students at the World War 1 museum in Kansas City, Missouri

Last school year was the first time the World War 1 field trip was introduced to Baldwin High School. 

The teachers involved with the field trip are social studies teacher Grant Bachura, social studies teacher Jeffrey Cullins and social studies teacher Donald Blanchat. 

“Last year was the first time we went to the World War 1 museum,” Bachura said. “We’re just trying to provide the opportunity to kind of see first hand what we are learning about.”

The trip takes both of the world history classes to a museum in Kansas City, Kansas.

“Last year we had a blast, we got to see a lot of weaponry and trenches and things like that,” Bachura said. “It kinda made what we learned more realistic and I think it was a really good experience.”

Jeffrey Cullins teaches the same Law and Public Safety class as Bachura and went on last year’s field trip.

“I have taught at Baldwin High for three and a half years,” Cullins said. “Last year’s field trip was the first school trip to the museum I went with.”

Cullins is looking forward to going on the trip this year.

“It was amazing,” Cullins said. “There was so much to see and learn, as well as great food.”

Donald Blanchat is the girls basketball coach at BHS and went on the trip last year

“This is my tenth year teaching here at Baldwin,” Blanchat said. “It’s a great museum, they’re so thorough at telling the story.”

Blanchat was impressed with the amount of detail the museum put into the exhibits.

“It’s a great experience for high school kids, adults, and a lot of different ages can really enjoy and embrace the museum,” Blanchat said. “They had an open area up on a balcony and you look down, it showed the trench and the setup of it with a video board in the background, it was a lot of things to take in.”

The teachers and the students all enjoyed the time they spent at the museum.
