Outreach Programs

Classroom Programs

Bring the Cattle Raisers Museum experience to the classroom! Presentations can be adjusted to fit the classroom beginning with the history of the cattle industry and the introduction of cattle into the New World by Spanish explorers, the arrival of the Cowboy into Texas, and the development of the cattle drives and their impact on the economy of Texas. Students will also be introduced to the importance of stewardship in ranching today.

All programs include hands-on activities that provide opportunities for critical and creative thinking that deepens the understanding of the historical and present-day significance of the cattle industry for Texas.

The program presented can be adjusted to fit your classroom or curriculum needs. The standard presentation is approximately 30 to 50 minutes with a maximum of 30 students but it can be adjusted to meet your particular time frame. All programs meet TEKS requirements.

The outreach presentations for your school are provided at no charge and are offered Monday, Wednesday and Friday throughout the school year.
