PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

NEW FOR FALL 2015!
Bundled product includes Reading Passages, Comprehension Questions, Classroom Activities, Bingo Cards, and Teacher's Key.
This bundled product contains everything you need for your unit on the Pony Express, Buffalo Bill Cody and the Wild West Show.

Imagine living thousands of miles away from your family with no easy way of communicating. Suppose there are no phones, no internet and no regular mail delivery. News of important events might take weeks or months to reach your loved ones. This is what life was like for people living apart from their families in the 1800s. The Pony Express and the Telegraph were two attempts to deal with the communication dilemma. Showman Buffalo Bill Cody started out as a pony express rider and his career is examined in this lesson plan as well.

This bundle includes all of my Pony Express, Buffalo Bill Cody and the Wild West Show products for a reduced price of $8.00.

This product is perfect for SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS, enrichment learning, homeschool or co-ops! The reading passages are great for CLOSE READING with any non-fiction graphic organizer. THIS LESSON INCLUDES READING PASSAGES, COMPREHENSION QUESTIONS, TEACHER’S KEY, CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES, BINGO CARDS AND CLUES, AND NON-FICTION GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS.
