Giddy Up Partners! This literacy unit provides lots of fun activities for the topic Cowboys and meets many common core standards. It includes skills such as main idea and details, vocabulary, context clues, and sequencing. You can use these activities as a center or independent work. They can be used whole group or small group. They can also be part of a social studies unit on traditions and culture. I have used this unit for Scott Foresman's Unit 6.4 for 2nd grade but it can used for other grade levels.
