Discovery Afternoon: From Vaquero to Cowboy
1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
From the days beginning before the sun rises, to the days end after the sun sets, a cowboys job requires long hours and hard labor. In this program, students discover the cowboys life by considering: What was a cowboys day like? Where did they eat, sleep, and socialize? What did cowboys wear and what equipment did he use? What impact did the vaquero have on New Mexico? Students will find the answers to these questions, identify different cowboy gear, and explore how we have adapted English cowboy terms from Spanish words. This new educational program will be held on some Wednesday afternoons and was developed with home-school students and their parents in mind, but is open to all children. Recommended for ages 5 to 10. The fee is $3 per person. Reserve your spot by calling LuAnn Kilday at 575-522-4100.
