Money of the Republic of Texas

Drawn from the UT Arlington Special Collections.

This kit includes digital replicas of Texas money from 1836-1845. The accompanying lesson plan teaches how Texas money reflected the region's identity. Also included is a one-page handout that gives a brief history of Texas money.

This kit was developed to complement kits in the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. The FWMSH kits, complete with artifacts on specific social studies and natural science topics, are available for loan from the museum.
