Everything is bigger in Texas!!!!

My students learned last week about our state TEXAS!!!! We had lots of fun studying about our state symbols: the bluebonnet, the Mockingbird, the Alamo, the capital, etc.  

If you want to teach Social Studies to 7 years old you NEED to make it FUN!!! Right? And that was exactly what my kids had the last week... lots of FUN!!!

We studied the map of Texas, locating the capital, its important cities and the surrounding states. 

We learned about Texas Symbols in a really cool way... the students decorated the clothes of cowboy they created with all the state symbols. They turned out super cute!!!
On Friday we "traveled" to Austin using a virtual tour. We visited the capitol. They loved it!!! How did I do it? Using the SenateKids website.

Later they created a book about everything they learned and their favorite things about our Lone Star State!

Have a nice week! :)
