Life in a Mission

Learning about the Texas missions by converting our classroom into one.    Students took a vow of poverty, obedience, and silence as they learned how the Native Americans lived in the Missions. 

Using a molcajete to grind the corn for dinner.


The agriculture station where students had to till soil and plant the seeds.

     Sorting the seeds.
