Rancho Period, The

Description: Using historical resources, students will describe how the Rancho period of settlement left its mark on the development of the local community. The Mexican War for Independence began in 1810. Prior to this time, California was under Spanish rule. Mexico took control over California in 1822, beginning the Rancho period. The processing and exporting of cow hides and tallow (fat used in the making of soap and candles) was the primary economic activity of the Californios (the name given to the people living in Alta California during this time period). This pastoral economy flourished, especially after the new government opened the ports of Monterey and San Diego to foreign trade. The Mexican governors began to distribute the large tracts of land to people of influence. Ranching conditions were almost perfect. The climate was mild enough to allow animals to live throughout the year with little shelter. Students discuss: What is a rancho? What did the ranchos contribute to the economic development of our area? What was life like on a rancho? Standard 3.3.2
