Montana state study


I visited Montana as a kid during our family reunions. We’d all descend on some town that I cannot remember beyond it was trading on its famous Old West cowboys and outlaws. I mainly remember visiting Custer’s Last Stand and then heading over to a saloon out of the Old West. Yep, that’s what I remembered about the state. So, let’s see what we learned with this Montana unit study for our geography lessons.

There were some truly fun books that I remember reading with the kids when they were younger.

What was in our Montana Unit Study

Montana is another state where I didn’t have too much for us to work with. Custer’s Last Stand and then some other fun books.

  • Old Faithful project– whoops, this picture was taken before I updated and learned I had Old Faithful in the wrong state (this is what happens when you visit 3 states in a few days, and don’t keep them all straight) This project is actually part of the Wyoming State Study
  • What happened when the wolves came back– this was my absolute favorite activity of the whole unit, after reading the book, we went in and watched a short documentary on what happened which really drove the lesson home (this activity didn’t originally come from this, but would work very well with it)
  • Battle of Little Bighorn- there is a rather interesting “The Way I Heard It” about the Battle of Little Bighorn, BUT it’s also not one I’d play for my kids because it’s FULL of double entendres.
  • Grizzly bear minibook- these came back again and it was kind of amusing to see the kids remake what they once did in preschool and kindergarten.
  • Dust Devil, make your own tall tale– The example I’m linking to is actually from a different lesson about mythology, but tall tales are somewhat the United States own attempt at creating their own mythology.
