7th Grade Texas History!!!

Hello,
 
Welcome to Texas history!  This year we will cover all things Texas.  We will start with the geography of Texas and the first people of Texas and cover all the way to present day.  This year I would like to compare what is going on in Texas to what is/was going on in the rest of America.  This will help your student be more familiar with American history and my hope is that it helps them next year when they take the 8th grade social studies STAAR test.  

Sincerely,

Mrs. Linda Supak
