And movies we watched:

Music CD:

Experience History Through Music: Westward Ho! The Heart of the Old West (book, songs, and CD)

Diana Waring Westward Ho

As usual, the kids spent a lot of time acting like cowboys (and cowgirls) and pretending to be in rodeo events.  We had a couple of ropes which they had made at a farm festival last year.  I know they are really understanding what we’re learning in books when they actually act it out!

Here are the cowboy lapbook pictures.  Most of this was from Hands of a Child “Cowboys.”
