Cowboys and Cattlemen

We are nearly done with our American History curriculum, on to cowboys and the Wild West.  We are using a book called Wild West by Kingfisher that is very well done.  The illustrations really help you get a feel for life on a ranch.  It is out of print, but worth picking up used.




Even though I grew up on a tiny ranch and am familiar with the whole bit, the girls haven't a clue.  I found these videos to enhance our studies of cowboys and the west.  I hope you like them.

I found a few printables on Homeschool Share on cowboys.  Here are photos of how we used them.
