In coordination with our HSSD Gifted and Talented Program, representatives from Arkansas State Parks brought a 25-foot planetarium to our Park Magnet School and presented a “Native Americans and the Stars” program to more than 250 HSSD fifth grade students. Amy Griffin, Park Interpreter at Toltec Mounds Archeological State Park (Scott, Arkansas), set up the portable planetarium. Programs like these from Arkansas State Parks offer engaging content for students that also support classroom curriculum standards. “Native American and the Stars” programs include lessons in social studies, science, and reading comprehension - as interpreters explain how Native Americans used the stars and constellations for navigation, and passed down knowledge from generation to generation through storytelling.
