First Grade students in Mrs. King’s class at St. Mary School have been studying the characteristics and history of Texas.  Pictured are students engaged in a kinesthetic activity identifying and illustrating Lone Star facts and features such as the governor, capital, state flag, state flower, state tree, bordering states, etc.    The lesson ended with a “Taste of Texas”, a slice of pecan pie for everyone!      

Pictured among unidentified cowboys and cowgirls are (top left to right) Nicholas Barfield, Mrs. Melinda King and Ronan Watters.  King is giving individualized instructions on the activity.
