Living in Oklahoma more than half my life, Texas was a frequent destination for vacations, weekend getaways and even to the airport to fly out somewhere. My oldest brother even lived in Texas for several years, so we visited then as well. My youngest brother graduated from basic training for the Air Force in San Antonio, so I spent a quick weekend there. And in college, I visited Austin, where our church attended a Passion conference. So yes…I’ve been to Texas more than a few times.

Everything you need to teach and/or learn about the great state of Texas. From free printables to must see places to visit, to crafts, activities and more! :: www.homeschoolgiveaways.com


Texas is the second largest state in the United States by both area and population. While there is much farming and ranching, there are also a number of large cities that offer a variety of activities, culture and experiences. Our kids have only been to Texas once when we had a family wedding, so not much was done that trip. So until we can return, we love to research and learn about the different sites we can see. If you’d like to learn more about the state, use these resources below. There are printable to help kids learn about the states history, geography, symbols, plus crafts and activities. You could even cook up some of the states favorite and most famous recipes with your unit!
