Teacher's Guide - Texas Revolution - Alamo Chocolate Pot Details

This reusable guide covers 1803-1845 and such key people as Santa Ana, James Bowie, and Davy Crockett. This guide is to be used in conjunction with the Alamo Chocolate Pot (EDU 108). The chocolate pot, or choloatera, was uncovered during an archaeological dig by the north entrenchment wall of the Alamo in San Antonio in 1974. The Aztecs are credited with introducing drinking chocolate to the Spanish, which became popular in their settlements. Drinking hot chocolate soon became a status symbol in Spain. Certain kitchen equipment was needed for storage, grinding, heating, and serving. The lesson explores the Texas Revolution and its historic origins from 1803-1845. The lesson can be used to teach the influences of Latin America cultures, Texas Revolution art, or as part of US/World history courses.
