Texas Independence Day Lapbook
As part of our Texas Independence Day celebration, we’d planned on visiting the San Jacinto Monument and making a lapbook. I looked for a pre-made lapbook for Texas Independence Day, but couldn’t find one so I made one up. It’s in two parts thanks to being on two different computers, and uses one main file folder and one inner flap (I added a piece leftover from a previous lapbook – you may choose to add two smaller inner flaps if you like).
The cover is in part 2 and there are a total of 14 mini-books inside, including a timeline (this one is just cut and pasted in; you may choose to let your kids make one using the info on the included list), the six flags over Texas and two poems/songs. I also found a video on YouTube that goes over the highlights of the Texas Revolution here. It’s a little over 4 minutes, so nothing in-depth, but good for busy kids who don’t like long boring history shows. I also found this one (music ends/commentary begins at :55). It’s good once you get past the music.
Here are the insides:
If you use this lapbook, please comment and link to your blog with pictures. I’d love to see additions and modifications for older or younger kids.
