History kits ready for class
October 27, 2006
Think of it as a mini-museum, only it's in the school classroom. "Exploring History" kits, made possible by a grant from the Arkansas Humanities Council and the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation, are now ready for teachers to use in their classrooms.
Ten kits, designed for kindergarten through 12th grade, are filled with artifacts, books, audio tapes, photographs, videos, posters, timelines, flags and many other visual aides and activities to be used in the classroom.
Kits may be checked out at the Boone County Heritage Museum for a time period of one week. Kits may also be reserved for specific dates.
The kits include "famous Arkansas," "Harrison - History and Government," "Arkansas Ozarks - The Depression and the New Deal," "African-American History in Arkansas and the Ozarks," "Ozark Culture - Folklore, Food, Language and History," "Native Americans of Arkansas and the Ozarks," "Where were you in World War II?," "Fun With State Symbols," "Civil War or the War Between the States," and "Louisiana Purchase and the Wild Frontier."
Items included in the kits can be used as displays, a lesson plan or a source of additional research materials to use in the classroom. For more information or to receive a kit, please contact the Boone County Heritage Museum at (870) 741-3312.
