Students review Texas History events from Cortes' defeat of the Aztecs to the Treaty of Cordoba by completing a 23 item timeline and answering 4 questions. Students also classify each item according to a system detailed in the instructions, complete 2 tasks for 11 items of their choice, and answer 4 questions. There are arrows in the first two lines of the timeline showing students the direction to fill out the pieces in and extra pieces for students to add additional events. This could work for a sub! The answers are provided where appropriate.
Sample timeline items and questions include:
--Age of Contact begins
--de Onate reached and named the Northern Pass
--Y’Barbo founded Nacogdoches
--Battle of Medina
--Augustin de Iturbide issued 3 promises for Mexico
--Explain the nature of the competition between Spain and France in the Mississippi River area. Why did La Salle want to establish a base of operations and why would that have been a threat to Spain?
--Should Mexico have received independence from Spain, why or why not?
