Teach your fourth graders to ask (and answer) questions about the Colonization of Texas and the Empresarios. This activity can be done by individual students, in stations, or in table groups. With groups, each group takes a sheet (i.e., one takes the "Who" sheet, one takes the "What" sheet, etc.) and finds the answers to their questions. Much of the material is cross referenced on different sheets, so that the same information is asked via a "who" question and a "how" question, for example. Use as a daily grade, or as a review—or both. Student love it, and it helps them practice finding text evidence and teaches them to examine each bit of information with different questions.
