We just finished another book in the Magic Tree House series. Ghost Town at Sundown.  This book about the wild west was by far our favorite read.  It just so happened that at the end of our week study our local historical museum had a cowboy camp for children.  What a great way to piece everything together!

We learned about rattlesnakes and tried to move around like one.

We took a field trip to our local horse museum.

Ethan was able to pet a real mustang at the cowboy camp.

I encourage you to read this book with your little ones.  If you do not homeschool, this would be a fun activity to bond over after school.  A few other things we did: listened to cowboy songs, ate biscuits, drew horses, and read about mustangs and rattlesnakes.
