4th Grade Alamo Research

This week at the RBE Library, our 4th graders will be researching the Battle at the Alamo. Through the use of the Symbaloo above, some library books, and resources from our district databases students will learn all about the Battle of the Alamo.

Students will meet in the computer lab next week to assemble their information into a Google Presentation. All of the documents used for this project can be found below.

    • Hello Carl,

      Are you a teacher or librarian? MackinVia is portal or interface that allows our students to access our district subscription databases, like World Book Online and EBSCO through one login and password. Please feel free to email me if you have any other questions! lambertn@friscoisd.org

  1. The battle of The Alamo was just so Fierce.Was it a mandate that the Mexican army had to attack and destroy the Alamo?Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!!!! But the Texas army defeated the Mexican Army.

  2. I love the idea of bookmarking the sites, even on MackinVIA so once they log in they have the info and aren’t spending the whole time trying to find their tribe. Wouldn’t have thought of that! Going to use this Symbaloo idea to do that w some research! You rock!
