Classroom Programs

Bring the Cattle Raisers Museum experience to the classroom! The Cattle Raisers Museum staff provides lesson plans for your classroom. Topics span the story of the cattle industry from its origins among the West’s early Spanish settlers, through the heyday of the legendary drovers, all the way to today’s modern range technology. Students will also be introduced to the importance of stewardship in ranching today.

The lesson plans presented can be adjusted to fit your classroom or curriculum needs. 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.

These lesson plans are available at no charge. To request a lesson plan, please contact us at least 2 weeks prior to your scheduled date or event at mtorres@fwmsh.org or 817-332-8551.
