Fort St. Louis: Grading a Settlement and an Explorer

For this social studies lesson, students will work in cooperative groups to evaluate the success of the French explorer La Salle and his settlement in Texas, Fort St. Louis. They will then incorporate these materials into an illustrated history book about the first French settlement in Texas, known today as Fort St. Louis. Suggested for 7th-grade and adaptable for 4th-grade. This lesson was adapted by Jason Terry from an older TBH lesson, "Fort St. Louis: A Do-It-Yourself History."
