Product Description
Sam Houston and Mirabeau B. Lamar were two dynamic, yet different, presidents of the Republic of Texas. In this activity, your students will explore these differences while learning about the issues that impacted the Republic of Texas.

Your students will begin the lesson with a Character Quote activity. What can they tell about the president's of Texas from primary sources? Students will then research these two presidents on topics such as annexation vs. empire, relations with Mexico and Native Texans.

Once research is complete, your students will role play Sam Houston or Mirabeau B. Lamar in a Talk-It-Out debate. They will conclude the lesson with a Sum It Up paragraph.

When you purchase this lesson, you will receive:

--primary source quotes from both Houston and Lamar,
