Each week on the Junior Curators blog, we travel back in time to a different place in Tennessee history. Stories may be about a famous person, place or event from Tennessee’s past. They will include things like priceless artifacts, pictures, videos, and even some games. Be sure to better understand the story by answering the questions at the end of each post.
After learning the story, be sure to share what you've learned with your parents, family, or friends. Try making your own exhibit about it, shooting a movie, or writing a story about it. Let your creativity run wild!

You may not realize how much you can learn about the culture of Tennessee by exploring some great outdoor spaces. Play this online boardgame with family and friends and get to know more about the Tennessee State Parks all across the state and maybe even near you.
Click here to play. Please read the instruction below.
Each player chooses a different color piece and places it on the Green Flag.
The youngest player goes first.
Roll the die and move that number of spaces.
Click the "i" in the corner of the space for an interesting fact or instructions.
Drawing a Card:
Each card contains a question and a link to some information you may need to answer that question (go ahead and click, it isn’t cheating).
Answer the question out loud (there isn’t anywhere to enter your answer)
Click the check mark to see the correct answer.
If you answered the question correctly (hint - really, you should use the link) roll the dice and move again.
If you answered the question incorrectly your turn is over.
Be the first player to make it to the checkered flag.
