Texas - The Big State Activity


Take a trip across Texas with the 1952 film, “Texas – The Big State.” This activity familiarizes students with the geography of the state as well as important landmarks and industries of the mid-20th century Texas. The “Before the Film” worksheet has students map the locations featured in the film. The “During the Film” worksheet can be completed by students while watching the film or segments of the film. The “After the Film” discussion questions and writing prompts ask students to reflect on the film and compare the 1950s to present day Texas.
