Good morning scholars!
I Can: Detail the process and importance of Texas and Florida becoming states.
Fast fact: The United States started out with 13 states and now we have 50!
Today we are going to learn why and how Texas and Florida became states. I'm sure many of you have visited Florida and some of you probably even have gone to Texas. Becoming a state has never been easy and that is definitely the case for Florida and Texas. Florida and Texas faced much conflict and ups and downs on their way to becoming states. Remember, some parts of what is now the United States were controlled by Britain, Spain, France, Russia and Mexico in the early to mid 1800s.
In today's reading I really want you to zone in how difficult it is for a territory or area to become a state.
Many people today think that Puerto Rico should become a state, but the process is complicated and difficult.
When you answer the COMPREHENSION QUESTIONS ON THE DOCUMENT THAT I PROVIDE really make an effort to develop your thoughts with details from the text. Fully explain your reasoning and thoughts!
Also, I thought it would be fun to answer this question and post it on the stream page:
STREAM PAGE QUESTION: Which of the 50 states would you most like to visit? Why?
Good luck, scholars! I'm really proud of you!
I Can: Evaluate the reasons for Japanese Internment
During WWII, 120,000 Japanese-Americans were forced into camps, a government action that still haunts victims and their descendants
• Franklin D. Roosevelt calmly signed Executive Order 9066,(1942), giving the army the power, without warrants or indictments or hearings, to arrest every Japanese American on the West Coast
• 110,000 men, women and children taken from their homes and transported to camps
• The Japanese remained in those camps for three years
• Japanese evacuation huge wartime mistake and blunder on Roosevelt's legacy
• Another dark moment in the nations long history of racism
