What lasting impact did the establishment of the Spanish missions have on Texas? Your students will explore this essential question in a reading and visual activity.
Students will begin the activity by examining images associated with the Spanish mission system and answering visual analysis questions. They will then work with a partner to read about the Spanish mission system and answer discussion questions. They will use a Cartoon Notes graphic organizer to take notes. The activity concludes with a mosaic assignment. This activity includes embedded Interactive Student Notebook assignments with a preview, graphically organized notes, and a processing assignment.
