The rodeo is one of the largest public events in our area. Students are fascinated by the events and inner workings of the rodeo. As part of the first grade’s spring study of economics, the students have the opportunity to attend The Stick Horse Rodeo. In preparation for The Stick Horse Rodeo, students experience several economics lessons. Using stories about Rodeo Ruby, they identify what is scarce and using the decision making hat to choose the best use of the scarce resource. Using the book, Cowboys and Cowgirls Yippee-Yay, students identify and sort the productive resources found at the rodeo. Teaching in a high poverty area means that students often do not have the means to participate in extra events such as the Stick Horse Rodeo. After viewing several examples of Fredric Remington’s western sculptures, students will produce a stick horse sculpture to use at the stick horse rodeo. In class, students will use the socks, duct tape, buttons and googly eyes purchased with this grant to create their stick horses. Students will be divided into groups each with a different task to complete (stuff socks, attach stuffed socks to donated pvc pipe with duct tape, glue on eyes, etc.) We will use the stick horses to build a home/school connection through a Rodeo Parent Night. At this event, students and parents will use the yarn, felt, cotton rope, and fun foam to embellish their stick horses by adding a mane, bridle, and decorations. Please consider helping these deserving students participate fully in a district-wide event.
