Cowboy Project

One of the most exciting aspects of Home Education is the fact you are not bound by a set curriculum, but can explore your child's interests and natural desires to learn. Nathanael's current interest is in Cowboys, so we have just completed our latest project on this subject.
 Here are some of the things we have done...
Nathanael had fun lassoing Horatio the horse in the garden.
We located the United States of America on our globe and found the Western states.
(Abigail in cat ears!)

We compiled our work into lapbooks...

Drawings of  a ranch, saloon, rustlers, chuck wagon, Texas Longhorns, bunk house and horse.
Colouring sheets of Cowboys and Indians from the Activity Village.
