Texas Indians

     We are working on a series of YouTube videos on Texas Indians.  This week we are presenting the Karankawas.  Where did they live?  What was their diet? What kinds of shelter did they have?  What was their most common dress?  How many Karankawas are alive today?  You should be able to answer these questions after you have watched the video.
     So far, we have two additional videos for 4th and 7th grade Texas History students (and teachers):  Texas Indians:  The Apaches and Texas Indians:  The Alabama-Coushatta, with more to come in the future.

    Send us your suggestions by commenting below.  We are producing a new video every week!  Don't miss out by subscribing at

Endangered Animals

Endangered Animals
     Are your students studying endangered animals?  The World Wildlife Fund lists sixteen critically endangered animals.  This incredible resource lists the current population numbers, the scientific name, the habitat, and additional pertinent information about each animal. There are more than thirty animals on the endangered list as well.  
     Have your students research the environmental threats to these endangered animals. Just type in "endangered animals" in the search box on Infotopia
     To see a video of the endangered animals, check out Infotopia World's YouTube video here.   

 The YouTube video on critically endangered animals is found here.
