I am trying to develop a unit that will tie into a rodeo event my district is having, So far, I have great ideas to tie in Social Studies (geography w/a Region Tour), & lots of literature ideas. I need more ideas to tie in Math. So far, I am tying in measurement (horses are measured by "hands"...non-standard units of measurement activities for this), and place value/re-grouping (one of my books is about cowboys rounding up "ones'). I need more ideas for math!! Can you think of other activities to extend upon the ones I have listed? Or do you have other ideas?? PLEASE share! TIA!!
