Nature and Place Names in Arkansas

Middle schoolers examine the way that many place names in Arkansas came to be. By looking at Arkansas highway maps, they find names that come from the characteristics of each of the state's six geographical divisions. This interesting lesson will leave students with a much better sense of the six divisions of Arkansas, and it will familiarize them with the state's geography.
