A Visit with PawPaw Texada: A Play for 3rd Grade Classes


In this thirty five minute play, the character of PawPaw Texada educates children on the products, animals, natural history and resources and history of Louisiana, including the Battle of New Orleans. This program coordinates with the state’s 1st grade curriculum. All of the products discussed in the “PawPaw Texada” program are represented in the museum’s rotunda exhibits.

Elementary classes can book a performance of the “PawPaw Texada” program any weekday between 9am and 3pm. Performances are offered free of charge to schools, church groups and summer camps. Contact McKenzie Curtis at mckenzie.curtis@sos.la.gov or 318-632-2020 to schedule a performance.
