Product Description
The unit includes the history of the Texas Cattle Drives with reading, writing, math, geography and language translations! Students will decide on a location for their own cattle ranch, then decide where they will drive their cattle to market. They will have to hire and pay trail hands, cooks, and trail bosses according to how many miles and days they travel. (tons of math work!) They will draw a card each day to see what happens with their herd. They will journal their daily drive including all sorts of things they may encounter, such as: bad weather, disease, cattle thieves, and even Native American tribes along the way.

With purchase you get:
daily plans for 7-10 days
worksheets
Cattle Cards
Chisholm Trail ppt presentation
**many suggestions for differentiation

This was the most fun learning my students have had in Social Studies all year!! They were even worried about their herds over their Spring Break! Your students will love it too!
