This bundle includes an integrated Texas unit and a Texas symbols slide show.
Here's a variety of activities you can use for teaching your student all about Texas. I've included activities for graphing, measuring, map making, writing, and reading. The activities can be used with Kindergarten and 1st grade students.
Included in this unit:
Texas map with symbols
Texas macaroni sorting and graphing activity
Our Favorite Texas Symbol graph
Alamo foldable with 4 state symbols
Texas and U.S. Flags comparison
Little Red Hen and Armadilly Chili book comparison
Legend of the Bluebonnet reading response and writing activity

6 Texas themed scrambled sentences (in color and black/white) and recording sheet

Texas literature book list
Texas symbols included: Alamo, armadillo, bluebonnet, chili, cowboy boot, cowboy hat, flag, guitar, grapefruit, mockingbird, Monarch butterfly, pecan tree, longhorn, cotton, cactus, oil, yellow rose, rocket (NASA).
Here's a slide show to help you kick off your Texas unit. It shows 14 different symbols of Texas plus a caption with interesting facts for each symbol.
After viewing this slide show, students make a Texas themed booklet as a teacher directed or independent activity. Student booklet corresponds to each slide's caption. Students fill in the missing words on the booklet's captions by watching the slide show. Clip art is included for students to color and match to the appropriate caption.
Be sure to check out the preview to get a glimpse of all the slides.
I also have an American Symbols unit and slide show that's similar to my Texas Duet:
