Education in Action invites you to make your 4th grade classroom come alive! You will travel to the Fort Worth Stockyards with your young historians to see the Fort Worth Herd, take on the Cowtown Cattlepen Maze, and discover first-hand how Fort Worth developed its "Cowtown" identity. Next, you and your students will learn all about the regions of Texas, pioneer life, cattle drives, and the Goodnight-Loving Trail at the Doss Heritage and Culture Center in Weatherford. The best part is, we handle all of the details so you don't have to! Program is aligned with 4th grade Social Studies TEKS.
