A new educational tool developed in partnership with nonprofit Big Thought is taking the midway, livestock, food and Big Tex to classrooms this fall. The curriculum uses aspects of the State Fair of Texas to teach students in grades 4-8 lessons in math, science, language arts, art and social studies.
Shelia Lyons, a sixth-grade math teacher at Dallas ISD’s John B. Hood Middle school, is among teachers using the curriculum in her classes.
