Do you struggle to fit Texas History into your 4th grade classroom? These passages are purpose built to help you integrate Texas History into your ELAR block. I know classrooms are short on time, and this resource will give you twice the learning!

What is the Texas History Passages Bundle?

Each passage and set of questions takes up a single page and includes an optional extension activity for further learning. The topic of each passage was chosen to meet the streamlined social studies TEKS for 4th grade. Multiple genres are used including historical fiction, informational nonfiction, fictional narrative, poetry, infographics, web pages, graphic organizers, and maps.


How should I use Texas History Passages?

  • Together as a whole class activity
  • Individually for student assessment
  • As a station or learning center
  • With a small group guided by the teacher
  • At home to connect to learning in the classroom

The possibilities are endless! They are digital-ready as Google Slides and can be easily assigned using Google Classroom.


This Texas History resource has printable and digital formats to meet the needs of all classrooms and includes an answer key.

What Teachers Think About This Bundle:


AMAZING Resource! Very engaging and love that can use for both reading and social studies all in one.



I love that my students can access this through their Chromebooks and they are so engaged in their learning.



This was a great resource to use with my students during distance learning. I am looking forward to using it in the classroom this year. Students were engaged and learning!



I like the texts and to enhance our Texas history lessons in my class. Students like reading these to learn more about the historical figures. The extension is also really nice for the GT students.
