    For Texans - Any Texas History Advice?

    We just wrapped our year and I feel I can't rest until next year is ready!

    We use SOTW as our history spine because I group multiple ages together for History. The older children do the MP Classical Studies/History also, but according to the sequence we are working on. This year I feel I should add in Texas History - can anyone recommend a supplement? I do not want a lapbook study. I am thinking of some basic notebooking, but I would love any advice!

    Texas history resource

    We aren't quite ready to start, so I just have this bookmarked for now but thought it might help you...

    Notebooking is a great idea for this too!

      I have that link bookmarked too - what a great list of resources! I am really interested in discovertexasonline but feel it is just too expensive, though I would love to have everything in one place. I plan to add Texas history events to our timeline as we go, instead of teaching a stand alone course, as they do in TX schools.

        Thank you so much for this information. Surprisingly, our library does not have a good selection of books on Texas history for children. I should probably cover some of this before they start getting weird looks from their friends. I studied Louisiana history in eighth grade. If you didn't know the answer, Iberville or Bienville was a good guess. What we need is a Famous Men of Texas.
        Blessings,
