Learning Objective

Students will explain the growth, development, and impact of the cattle industry, including contributions made by Charles Goodnight, Richard King, and Lizzie Johnson through interactive notebooking activities.


This Texas Frontier interactive notebook kit is the perfect addition to your Frontier Texas unit. By using notebook activities, students are able to experience history in a more tactile way that allows them to manipulate their knowledge.

My students love to cut, fold, and color their notes and I love the way they use their INBs to remember their learning on the growth of the cattle industry and changes across the state of Texas

This notebook kit is perfect for recording your students' learning during your Frontier Texas unit to keep as an artifact of their learning all year long.
