Fall School Fair 2016

Historic Arkansas Museum - Monday, September 12, 2016

Grades K - 6

9:30 am - 12 pm

or 11 am - 1:30 pm

This field trip program is typically $6 per student, but we're celebrating our 75th anniversary by offering free field trip programs throughout 2016!

Students will start their adventure through Arkansas history with 30 minutes of storytelling in the theater then venture outside to our historic grounds for 1.5 hours as they rotate through six interactive activity stations.

The theme of this year's Fall School Fair is the Gold Rush. Students will sign up for a trip to the Gold Fields of California, then learn about and prepare for the long journey. They'll churn butter and learn about the foods they will carry, visit a blacksmith to see what he makes that will help along the way, help put a wagon wheel together and pan for gold. Along the way, they'll meet living history characters, listen to pioneer music and more.
