Hello 7th Graders,
As we discussed in class, we need to get a head start on the next chapter - so over the weekend, please read and take notes on Chapter 13, Section 1. Then read section 2, and answer the following questions on looseleaf paper:
1. Explain how American settlers caused problems in Textas.
2. Why didn't Texas join the United States in 1836?
3. Create a list of 4 events (and their dates) that led to the formation of the Lone Star Republic.
4. How did losing the Battle of the Alamo serve as a turning point for Texas Independence?
5. Why was Texas a magnet for land speculators and investors?
Feel free to email me if you have any questions! Both of these assignments are due on Monday, March 14th at the beginning of class.
