This powerpoint illustrates the early spanish missions of Texas. It includes modern day pictures of the Allamo (San Antonio de Valero) as well as a chronological history dating from Ysleta and the Franciscans to the return of the French. It also includes a detailed map of the early missions of Texas and their locations near major Texas rivers. There are also a few lecture notes with questions to pose to your students. My 4th graders loved studying the missions and making connections to their present-day cities.
