This tracing project is meant to be a culminating project on the study of famous cattlemen and women.
After you have studied cattle drives and cowboys, students select a cattleman or woman to research. They should determine who they were, what made them famous, their influence on the cattle trade, and when and where they lived.
After their research has been completed, students will create a life-sized poster of their cattleman or woman by tracing themselves. Their tracing will be turned into their cattleman and surrounded by facts.
Finally, students will present their posters to the class. They make GREAT displays as well.
