Mission Settlements of San Antonio


Students will locate San Antonio River, acequis and missions on aerial photographs.  They will also assume the persona of a member of the Catholic Church, the military, or a Spanish colonist and practice writing a petition to the Spanish Crown.  The ultimate goal will be to have students understand how the Spanish system of colonization and water usage influenced San Antonio.
