In Texas, state history is an educational rite of passage that will take your child on an historical adventure across the diverse regions of the Lone Star State. A highlight of third grade Social Studies—and a favorite day in the life of ROBS students—is Famous Texan Day. After careful investigation (and changing their minds a few times), students choose a character as the subject of in-depth research. The culminating project includes an opinion piece on why they chose their character and a playful exploration through a board game based on the life of their research subject. It is exuberant, memorable learning at its best.
