This unit is a great unit to wrap up after studying the Southwest and Midwest Region of the United States. This unit focuses on the history of the cattle trails in the United States. It includes a power point research project, worksheet about branding cattle and the clothes cowboys wear. A worksheet that can be used to research cattle trails. My favorite activity is the cumulative activity at the end where you create a cattle drive simulation. All the directions are included in this packet along with Chance cards. After all these activities there is a journal entry for the students to write about their life on a cattle trail.
