History of Cowboy Culture

Grades: 3, 6, 8

Task: Stories of ranching and cowboy life have been sung and told around campfires in the hills surrounding the Bar U Ranch for over a century. Two grade 3 classes from Red Deer Lake School, a grade 2/3 class from Millarville School, and students in grade 6 & 8 from McLaren School worked together on an inquiry study into the culture, the challenges and the future of the cowboy. The untold stories, poems and memories of cowboy life are retold in video, poems and stories through the voices of the children.
