Last school year, prior to COVID-19, the K-2 class at Yuma Adventist Christian School took a field trip to the Yuma Territorial Prison State Park. This local historical site provides many opportunities for students to learn about history and life during the 1800s. The class discovered that the prison was utilized by the city of Yuma in a variety of ways, including use as a high school, a hospital, a clubhouse, and also as a home for homeless families during the Great Depression. The teacher described the field trip as a wonderful and educational time for the class.
