Students will learn (or review) everything from the first half of Texas History: climate and physical geography, regions, early inhabitants, exploration, missions, Spanish Texas, Mexico's fight for independence, colonization, the Texas Revolution, Texas as a Republic, the annexation of Texas, and everything in between.
