PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Texas History Lessons Using First Day Covers
This eBook contains nineteen lessons that cover Texas History from the Spanish exploration to President G.W. Bush. Each lesson is based on the students analyzing the images found on a first day cover (an envelope containing a commemorative stamp, appropriate postmark and artwork). The lessons provide the teacher with strategies to hook students on the topic of study, such as questions targeting the 5W/H as well as analyzing, generalizing, drawing inferences or conclusions, and cause and effect. Images can be projected onto a white board for whole class discussion or printed out for individual student work. Other primary sources (diary entries, letters, resolutions and excerpts from speeches) where appropriate may be included in the lesson, and each lesson has a concluding activity. The lessons can be a quick introduction to a fuller lesson all ready created by the teacher, or it can be a way to provide students with the images and facts needed to remember the history necessary to pass a state standardized test. Lessons include Spanish explorer Coronado, Bernardo de Galvez and the Galveston Bay, Texas From the Revolution to the Republic, Davy Crockett and the Alamo, Sam Houston as Soldier and Statesman, Civil War Battles, the Emancipation Proclamation and Juneteenth Orders, Buffalo Soldiers, Henry O. Flipper, Charles Goodnight and the Cattle Industry, Galveston Hurricane and the American Red Cross, Petroleum and Spindletop Hill, Sam Rayburn, The Dust Bowl, Oveta Culp Hobby and Women in World War II, Texas Leaders in World War II, President John F. Kennedy and Texas, Barbara Jordan and Impeachment, and President George W. Bush and
