Educators from across South Dakota, in collaboration with Lynn Verschoor, the Executive Director of South Dakota Art Museum, are developing K-12 classroom curriculum for the Takuwe exhibition. The Curriculum Development Team includes (from R to L):

Blanche Froelich

Deanna Stands

Peri Strain

LaRayne Woster

Lynn Verschoor

Mabel Picotte

and the CAIRNS director (not pictured).

The curriculum is based on the text of the exhibition panels, and is intended to assist classroom educators in incorporating all components of the exhibition into their instruction. It includes examples of classroom activities for elementary, middle and high school students.

Special thanks to the South Dakota Community Foundation for supporting this endeavor.
