4th Grade Dress Like a Texan Day 


As a treat for the end of the Texas Symbols and Geography section of Texas History, the fourth grade students dressed like they think Texanns did or do dress.  They could choose any time period in history.  Some students were pioneers, cowboys, Caddo indians, doctors, teachers, chefs, etc.  In social studies, they sat around a campfire and listened to Pecos Bill tell tall tales and indian legends.  They also made up a tall tale by doing a continuous story by going around the circkle and adding their part to it.  In Creative Writing, they wrote tall tales and shared them with each other.  In reading class, they read Paul Bunyan and the Blue Ox, as well as other tall tales .  In math, they talked about measurments and why frontiersman might need to know these things.  Students also ate popcorn that weas grown in the field of one of the days farmers.
