 The second graders at Fairview Elementary spent several weeks working on a cowboy unit as part of their literacy instruction.  Students read books and stories about cowboys, designed and created wanted posters, and wrote stories about their own adventures as a cowboy.  The culminating event of the unit was a cowboy lunch, where all second grade students, dressed as cowboys, sat on the floor and ate together using their tin plates.  The cowboy unit is a favorite of students each year.
