 Arkansas History Power Points

The Arkansas Community Foundation awarded the Cabot School District a Bridge Grant to promote better instruction in Arkansas History. The money was used to create history boxes for elementary grades.    Grade level texts and read-aloud texts were placed in each of the elementary libraries to be used with the boxes. Copies of these same books were placed in the Cabot Public Library.  Mike Polston, curator of the Cabot High School History Museum, assisted in obtaining artifacts for the boxes.     Below are the power point presentations built by the Curriculum Team to use with each box of artifacts.

Attention Cabot Teachers:  Each power point has an Arkansas History Box that is available for checkout through the curriculum department at CAO.  Contact us!
