Star of the Republic Museum

The Star of the Republic Museum has created lesson plans to enhance your students' understanding of Texas History.  Whether or not your class is able to visit the Museum, these lessons will enrich the classroom experience by making objects from the museum accessible to students. 

Based upon artifacts in the exhibits or primary documents from the museum collection, these lesson plans can be adapted to different grade levels, depending on the teacher's needs.  All of the lesson plans are aligned with the TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) and are intended to supplement the core curriculum.

Some of these lesson plans contain items in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. You will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader to view and print these items. Acrobat Reader may be obtained from the Adobe Web Site.
