Students will read two texts about life on the ranch. The first text talks about Cowboy Wilbur's rugged life on the ranch. Your fifth graders will like the author's sly sense of humor. The second text is about how ranches operate today.
The texts are followed by a series of multiple choice questions aligned with various strands of the CCSS Grade 5 English Language Arts Standards for Reading.
