Our Texas State Capitol is home to many items that tell the story of our state's unique history. Arlie the Armadillo will take you on a virtual tour of this beautiful Texas icon and its chambers where our state's laws are made. Then you'll explore Waco Mammoth National Monument before heading to Inner Space Cavern, virtually! Along the way you'll learn about Texas fossils, watersheds, the water cycle, and the processes and rocks that created and make up the Earth's surface. 4th , 5th and 7th grade ELAR, Science, and Social Studies TEKS.

"This program was an amazing way for us virtually visit the Capitol. We got to see and experience things we never would have if we had gone in person. The t-shirt and Arlie were such nice souvenirs for the students to keep to remind them of their trip. Especially during the pandemic, it was nice for them to have such a fun experience. "
