This website has Texas History trading cards that can help students learn about the different founding fathers and historical figures. I think youth are so into trading cards that it could be a cool idea to either print some or have them make their own based on what they are learning.
Texas Regions: This would be an even better project for students to do! In groups they could each make a map of the regions. This would teach the students mapping skills and let them differentiate each region. They could then present it to the class when finished.
