The Task

LONE STAR LEGENDS


Texas is a state rich in history. It took many courageous people to establish this state! 

The kind of courage the early Texans showed is hard to imagine or relate to. We live a life of luxury compared to their lives! 

In this project, you will choose a legendary Texan and research his/her life.
 
YOU HAVE TWO LEARNING GOALS.
1.  Discover 6-8 significant events that formed that person's legacy.
2.  Decide WHY the person is considered a "legend".
 
You will share what you learn in two different electronic formats.
 

The Product

You will show your learning using these tools. 

  (REQUIRED)
Make a timeline on the computer or iPad, showing 6 (or more) significant events in the person's life. 

 (CHOOSE ONE)
Make a Voki or a Tellagami of your character that "talks" .
Have the character explain WHY he/she is considered a "legend".
