3rd Grade ELAR or 4th Grade Social Studies - Fort Worth, TX

Education in Action invites you to make your 3rd or 4th grade classroom come alive! You will travel to the Fort Worth Stockyards with your young historians to see the Fort Worth Herd and discover first-hand how Fort Worth developed its "Cowtown" identity. Next, you and your students will learn all about the railroad industry and how train cars shaped the West at the Museum of the American Railroad. The best part is, we handle all of the details so you don't have to! Program is aligned with 3rd and 4th grade Social Studies TEKS.
