Students review the exploration of Texas, Mexico's fight for independence, colonization, the Texas Revolution (2 versions), the Republic of Texas, and the Civil War and Reconstruction by organizing and classifying 21-24 items on a timeline. They also answer 4 questions for each timeline and complete two different tasks for 10-12 events per timeline. There are arrows in the first two lines of each showing students the direction to fill out the pieces in and extra pieces for students to add additional events. This could work for a sub and the answers are provided where appropriate. The timeline for the frontier period through World War 2 is a more detailed, project and research style timeline.
