Introducing Mahaffie Activities for Today's Students!

Every Monday from September 7 through November 2 we will release a FREE Nearpod lesson. Nearpod is an online learning platform that is free to use. You do not need an account to view the lesson - all you need is the link. Check back on the link here or on to access the lesson link, or email to have the link emailed to you each week.

Mahaffie staff members have been working with the Olathe School District to align these lessons with Kansas curricular standards. Each week's lesson addresses a different inquiry question with primary sources, videos, and at-home activities.

Here's the fun part: Every Wednesday from September 9 to November 4 there will be a field trip opportunity from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Mahaffie's historic grounds with activities aligned with the weekly Nearpod lesson.

Admission for students attending MATS is $5. One adult will be admitted free with each paid student. The adults admitted free may choose to pay $2 for a stagecoach ride. Additional adults are $5. Children ages four and under are free. Picnics are encouraged!

***Drop-ins are welcome, but prior registration is appreciated! Registering ahead helps us plan for staffing needs.
