Students review 23 events from Texas' declaration of independence to the annexation of Texas by completing a timeline of events from 1836-1845. Students also classify each item according to a system detailed in the instructions, complete 2 tasks for 10 items of their choice, and answer 4 questions. There are arrows in the first two lines of the timeline showing students the direction to fill out the pieces in and extra pieces for students to add additional events. This could work for a sub! The answers are provided where appropriate.
Sample timeline items and questions include:
--Treaty of Velasco signed
--Texas Archive War
--Austin becomes the capital
--Anson Jones becomes president
--Which president do you think was most and least effective and why? If another historical figure could have replaced one of the Republic’s presidents who would you choose and why?
--Create a one line slogan to sum up the Texas Republic.
***a teacher's note is included in the file describing an alternate way students can complete this activity***
