Product Description
The second unit of "The Spirit of Texas" Texas History curriculum introduces students to Texas's geographical place in the world, its seven regions (South Texas Plains, Prairies and Lakes, Big Bend Country, Piney Woods, Hill Country, Gulf Coast, and Panhandle Plains), and native Texas plants and animals.

Students begin by reading a short passage (1-2 pages) from the "Daily Reading" text found at the beginning of the unit. Following the silent or oral reading, students will answer the passage comprehension questions, and proceed to the Activity Guide section.

The Activity Guide section offers a multitude of cross-curricular activities related to the topic of the passage read. Math, science, crafts, vocabulary (vocabulary is bold/italicized in the daily reading text), geography, copy work, writing prompts, and many more exercises are described and suggested, along with reproducible worksheets. Also included are recommended books, art to explore, related websites, music and songs to learn, places to visit, and a supply list.
