Spiro and the Art of the Mississippian World
This exhibition explores the archaeological and historical data connecting the Spiro site to other communities throughout North and Central America, discusses the Spiroan community and religious activities, and highlights the enduring legacy of Native Americans today who are descended from Mississippian cultural groups.
Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center
Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center preserves 150 acres of the site along the Arkansas River. The center offers interpretive exhibits, an introductory slide program and a small gift shop. There are nearly two miles of interpreted trails, including a one-half mile nature trail. An archaeologist is on staff to answer questions and lead tours.
National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum
The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is America’s premier institution of Western history, art and culture. Founded in 1955, the Museum, located in Oklahoma City, collects, preserves and exhibits an internationally renowned collection of Western art and artifacts while sponsoring dynamic educational programs to stimulate interest in the enduring legacy of the American West.
Citizen Potawatomi Nation Cultural Heritage Center
The Citizen Potawatomi Nation Cultural Heritage Center re-opened in January 2018 after undergoing a 4-year renovation. New, updated, and digital interactive exhibits tell a more complete narrative, beginning with Citizen Potawatomi oral traditions, continuing through early ways of life, conflict, and forced removals before examining more recent history, including our time in Kansas and Indian Territory, and ending with the Citizen Potawatomi Nation today.
All My Relations Arts
All My Relations Arts honors and strengthens relationships between contemporary American Indian artists and the living influence of preceding generations, between artists and audiences of all ethnic backgrounds, and between art and the vitality of the American Indian Cultural Corridor.
Tribal Alliance for Pollinators
Tribal Alliance for Pollinators (TAP) is a new non-profit organization born out of the groundswell of support generated by the Tribal Environmental Action for Monarchs (TEAM). TEAM is a coalition of seven tribal partners — Chickasaw, Seminole, Citizen Potawatomi, Muscogee Creek, Osage, Eastern Shawnee and Miami Nations — who are restoring monarch habitat on their lands with the assistance of Monarch Watch and the Euchee Butterfly Farm. The TEAM coalition has restored over 50,000 milkweeds and 30,000 native wildflowers to date on 350 acres of habitat.

Dr. Seuss
Theodor Seuss Geisel (1904 -1991), winner of the Pulitzer Prize and three Academy Awards, is best known as Dr. Seuss, author and illustrator of forty-six children’s books. Since his first children’s book in 1936, Dr. Seuss has introduced several generations of kids to the joy of reading. His birthday (March 2) is celebrated as Read Across America Day.

Dr. Seuss Art
This official site features reproductions of illustrations from Geisel's Dr. Seuss books, as well as art he did for other books, and his own enjoyment. Be sure to visit all five of the galleries listed under Art of Dr. Seuss, and to read his short biography. "Sitting in his Anglo-Saxon for Beginners class, his [Geisel's] doodling caught the eye of a fellow American student named Helen Palmer. Helen suggested that he should become an artist instead of a professor. He took her advice and eventually, he took her hand in marriage as well."
Dr. Seuss Went to War
Although not for the preschool set, high school students and grown-ups will find this fascinating. For two years (1941-1943), Ted Geisel was an editorial cartoonist for a New York newspaper. During that time he drew over 400 editorial cartoons, mostly about World War II. This collection is organized by year, as well as by Places, People, Issues and Battles.
PBS: Cat in the Hat
You've hit the Cat in the Hat jackpot, here at PBS Kids, with lots of games, coloring pages, paper crafts, activities and videos. My favorite click is the Math Safari, which features (can you guess?) math games that are emceed by the Cat in the Hat himself! Parents should take note of the Tips button in the lower-left hand corner for bonus ideas on bringing math, science and reading into your preschooler's everyday activities.

Seussville University
"Welcome to Seussville University, where you can have 'lots of good fun that is funny' while learning basic reading, math, science, and reasoning skills." From the Cat's Concentration game to Green Eggs and Ham picture scramble, Dr. Seuss fans will find plenty to crow about at this official Random House site. In fact, it's the only one of today's sites with activities and games for young readers. For classroom ideas, party projects and printable activity sheets, click on Educators.
