Upper graders scrutinize the clothing worn by the vaqueros in James Walker's painting, Cowboys Roping a Bear. They pay close attention to the period style as well as the clothing functionality in the given context. Kids then design their own pieces of clothing by combining forward-thinking fashion and functionality. In addition to United States history, this would also be a great lesson for a vocational or home economics course!
