Springdale, AR (PressExposure) September 27, 2007 -- The Education Station, Northwest Arkansas's teacher store, will publish reproducible Arkansas History units for grades kindergarten through sixth this fall.
In spite of recent controversy on Arkansas History and new state standards, state law still requires the teaching of a unit of Arkansas History in each grade from kindergarten through sixth. Arkansas teachers face frustration in complying with this law, since teaching materials on Arkansas history for elementary school students are very limited. It is this need that The Education Station intends to address with their series of reproducible teaching units.
The covers will use student artwork, chosen through a contest. Students are asked to submit designs using the shape of the state to express the spirit of Arkansas. The winning design(s) will be used on the book covers, and the winner's classroom will receive a $25 gift certificate to The Education Station.
All K-6 students are eligible, including homeschool, private, and public school students. The deadline is September 15th, The complete rules are available at the store in Ozark Center Point Place, at the website (educationstationteachers.com), or at Dexter's Discoveries (xanga.com/dextr).
