Welcome to 7th grade Texas History. We begin the study of our state with geography and prehistory prior to European exploration and settlement. We continue the year covering revolution, republic, and statehood. The course continues through Civil War and Reconstruction all the way through to the modern era. The course includes chapters on the cattle, cotton and oil industries as well as Texas involvement in both world wars. Students will come to recognize Texas as not only our great state but also as a state of mind.
