As you prepare for your class, the Curriculum Guide can serve as a guide for where the tour content fits into specific Arkansas History/Social Studies curriculum frameworks. The tour can be used to address a specific subject such as the Great Depression in Arkansas or it can provide a multi-subject review for students. Please consult the Museum staff on how the tour can be tailored to meet your classroom curriculum needs.
