Class Description:
Much like Texas, Texas History is a HUGE subject and full of exciting events. We will primarily be using the Discover Texas curriculum, which is designed for 4th-9th graders and covers not only Texas history, but touches on geography and government as well.

Interactive curriculum, lively discussions, class and individual projects, and guest speakers will keep this class exciting and anything but your ordinary history class.
