Next we start the comparisons. It is really important to me that students understand how lopsided the war was. Three big areas that we look at are the leaders of each side, the size of their armies, and the experience that each side brought to battle.
We go a bit further into the details of the leaders of each side of the revolution in addition to the causes and effects of different stages of the war. After we have focused on the people of the revolution my class loves to play this review game.
To wrap things up we do some more comparisons between the two sides of the war and end the unit with an anchor chart about the Treaty of Velasco which actually ended the way. My students always love to hear about how Santa Anna was actually captured.Texas Revolution Unit or each of the individual items in my store.
