March is Texas History Month!
Sam Houston was born March 2, 1793, and the Republic of Texas was born March 2, 1836. Sam Houston was its first president (and its third, as well).
Teaching Tip: Maybe you’d like to celebrate both this year as you study Texas history. Perhaps a sheet cake decorated like the state flag? Please leave a comment to tell us what your family does to make the day special!
