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 will focus on 6-8 significant events that formed that person's legacy. Then you will determine WHY he/she is considered a "legend". You will share what you learn in two different electronic formats.
- Moses Austin
- Stephen F. Austin
- Davy Crockett
- James Bonham
- Jim Bowie
- Susanna Dickinson
- James Fannin
- Sam Houston
- Anson Jones
- Mirabeau B. Lamar
- Jane Long
- Ben Milam
- Jose Antonio Navarro
- Cynthia Ann Parker
- Quanah Parker
- Juan Seguin
- Deaf Smith
- William B. Travis
- Lorenzo de Zavala
- David Burnet
- Richard King
- John Coffee Hays
- Elisabet Ney
You will show your learning using these tools.
Make a timeline on the computer or iPad, showing 6 (or more) significant events in the person's life.
Make a Voki or a Tellagami of your character that "talks" . Have the character explain WHY he/she is considered a "legend".
