Texas, The Lone Star State
All hail the state of Texas! There’s no shortage of pride here. When it is time to learn about the great state of Texas, this Texas Symbols and Landmarks Book is packed with all you need. Let’s take a look inside at all of the contents.
Texas Symbols and Landmarks
From the friendly folks and our unique vocabulary, to honoring the Texas flag, you’ll get the full Texas experience in these interactive activities! Use a composition book or have students put the activities inside the flag booklet as they finish. I spread these activities over a week (or more!) until the booklet is complete.
