To supplement your Texas History tests, final exam, or as an end of course review, students analyze 34 images and maps from Exploration to World War 2. There are specific questions for 18 images/maps and 5 prompts for students to respond to for 16 images/maps. They are a mix of photos and political cartoons. This would be great for a sub and the answers are included. The images are spaced in a way that you can also have students cut them out to create a visual timeline.
Sample questions include:
--Identify the overarching event this political cartoon represents and how it affected people in Texas.
-- Label the images on this page from 1-4, with one being the earliest and 4 being the latest, as well writing the who/what . Then, write a solid academic explanation of how they are chronologically connected.
--Place this image in between a cause and an effect within Texas History, then, write a historically appropriate, yet creative caption, demonstrating your understanding of the event the political cartoon represents.
--What is represented in these two images and from what time period within Texas History? Why are two different images used to portray a similar event?
The topics covered include:
--Exploration, Missions, Colonization/Old 300
--Revolution, Republic, Annexation
--Civil War, Reconstruction, the Frontier, Cattle Ranching
--Challenges, Age of Oil, Mexican Revolution
