A few other Rodeo Things

I have been looking through our 1st grade Rodeo unit, trying to update and make things exciting.  I haven't come up with much but here's what I've got so far.

I created a PowerPoint to introduce the Springdale Rodeo of the Ozarks to the students. 

 (it is a big file, not sure how long it takes to download)

One of the things we are suppose to do is talk about the 4 parts to production.  There is a little game in there that they play where everyone gets 4 cards (random) and has to go around trading with other students until everyone has 4 different cards (land, labor, capital, entrepreneurs).  Before hand I will explain what each part is and come up with a chart that shows pictures, definition, examples... etc).  Here are the card I made for the little game (you'd have to make a enough copies for each student to get the 4 different parts).

Next up, the Lemonade production line.  We originally had a production line to make cowboy hats but I've heard they were too hard to make.  So, I came up with the idea of making lemonade and selling it (to help with the cost it will be for the students to go to the stick horse rodeo.  Here's the lesson that goes with this.

Oh and I plan to show the I Love Lucy clip where they are wrapping chocolates.  

I haven't make this yet but there are some wants and needs of cowboys/girls that I'm gonna work on making.

(I think it is an earlier version but basically the same)

Back to work I go.  :)
