Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To examine ways of living on the last frontier during the 1860s, 1870s, and 1880s.

TIME:
1 class period

This lesson begins by giving each student a copy of pages 59A - 59C only. Page 59D will be distributed later in the period.

Read the introductory paragraphs about the "Wild West," as well as A Tall Tale, with the class. Then, give students a few minutes to write down two reasons in the spaces provided on page 59B why they would not have believed certain parts of the tale. Discuss their answers.

Next, read with the class the section Life in the West, then go over the rules for THE GUNSLINGERS GAME. Use the questions on page 59D during the game.

THE GUNSLINGERS GAME will be played by class members who want to face off against each other in a series of “gunfights.” One “gunslinger” will be matched against another to see who is first to answer a question about our Western states. The first person to answer correctly wins the duel. The other person is “dead,” and is eliminated from the game. The winners in the first round will then be matched against each other in a second round of gunfights. There will be more rounds until only one gunslinger remains “alive.” The winner will be “the fastest gun in the West.”

My students really enjoy this!

When the game ends, give each student a copy of page 59D to do as a review sheet.

Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
