Let's Discover Texas!

Students begin the lesson by taking a pre-test on their prior knowledge of the state of Texas. In groups, they participate in various activities to examine the geography, history, climate and vegetation of the state and record their findings. To end the lesson, they take the same test over again and compare their scores.
