Students will use primary sources to compare and contrast colonial technology with modern technology. Students will then watch the video In Washington Town and identify characteristics of a colonial town. After students have a feel for colonial life, they will examine the events that will lead to the Convention of 1836 in Washington-on-the-Brazos. In closing, students will create a flyer that will encourage others to live in Washington-on-the-Brazos.
