Students get a more in depth look at battles from the Texas Revolution by completing a 5 column graphic organizer and answering 9 questions. They pick 10 of 12 battles to research (or review from class) and fill in the battle name, when and where it happened, which side won, and the general historical significance of the battle. Depending on what you cover in class, the students might need access to reference books or the internet to do additional research. The answers are included where appropriate and this would be great for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--Which battle is known paralleled to American history as the, “Lexington of Texas” and why?
--Why did the Grass Fight begin?
--Under other circumstances, there could have been a battle at the port of Matamoros. Explain why that battle did not occur.
--Which battle do you think is most remembered today and why? Is your answer different if you answer as a Mexican or Texan and why?
