TEXAS HISTORY TUESDAYS: What Makes Texas, Texas?

Bullock Texas State History Museum

Two Opportunities to Connect Online:

10am & 1pm

  A museum educator, primary sources, and interesting content is a winning instructional combination. These programs are typically taught to elementary and middle school audiences, but we invite anyone who is looking for an enriching and fun experience to connect with us.   What do you picture when you think about Texas? How much do you know about the symbols chosen by our Legislature? Which symbols of Texas are your favorites? A Museum Educator will lead students as they discover the important elements and symbols that represent our great state through sight and sound.   Zoom webinar registration required. You'll be able to ask questions during the Q and A at the end of the program.  

For more information, including registration and extension activities, visit the Bullock Museum website.
