Product Description
This Geography of Texas Bundle is full of different activities for your beginning of the year geography unit. In money saving bundle you will receive all of my Texas Geography activities for a combined savings of 20%!

This bundle includes 3 different activities:


Which is the best Texas region to live in? Which is the best Texas region to live in? Students will explore this essential question as they take an imaginary field trip around the great state of Texas in the “Bus Tour of Texas”. Students will begin the lesson with a preview assignment – where have they visited in Texas? Where would they want to live? They will then grab a partner, and go on a field trip of the different regions of Texas. Your kids will see images of the regions out of the “bus window”, and then go to 4 different bus stops at different locations around the state. At each bus stop, they will exit the bus, read information about their bus stop, answer questions and write a post card “home” summarizing what they have learned. They will conclude the activity by making a brochure advertising the best Texas region.

Review for a test with Geography of Texas Task Cards. There are 32 question cards that are a combination of recall, maps, and images. Challenge your students at a variety of levels! Differentiate by giving certain cards to your students. A blank template is included at the end if you wish to include more questions. The Answer Sheet has space for up to 40 questions. I recommend that you laminate the cards so that you can use them year after year.

Do you include The Great Storm in your Geography Unit? I did! Included is both a DBQ and a reading with questions. Dig deep into the content of the Great Storm while your students explore the essential question “Was the Great Storm Galveston's greatest tragedy or triumph?” through primary sources and background essays. Students will begin this lesson with a hook analyzing a primary source video clip from Thomas Edison in 1900. They will then read a background essay and discuss the Great Storm and the changes that occurred in Galveston as a result. After they have completed the “Stop and Discuss” Questions embedded into the essay, they will analyze different primary sources on three different documents. An outline will then be used to guide students in the final step, writing an essay using the documents.
