The Cow Pasture Ride is one of the 14 short stories in Wheel of Arts curriculum that I created. Each short story is accompanied by hands-on activities. Music, Art, Dance and Drama are included in the activities. For instance, with the Cow Pasture story, only one student or more might choose writing a skit that has to do with different kinds of cows, or what the farmer does with the milk, or, why do some farmers have cows that they don't milk. The students would be given certain vocabulary words that must be used in the skit.
The students love to do the commercials activity with made up back ground music. Costumes like old clothes, ties, hats, etc and props add interest and fun.
The creativity of their minds is amazing.
My name is Eleanor Russell Brown and I loved teaching using this curriculum.
