Grade 8 (Y3): New Mexico History

We will read Chapter 9: New Mexico under Mexican rule as we segway into New Mexico becoming a US territory. Special attention will be paid to the origins and development of Santa Fe Trail.


Students are completing Chapter 9 “New Mexico under Mexican Rule.” This chapter varies from Chapter 8 because Mexico has now gained their independence from Spain. This chapter looks at the effects the Mexican independent movement had on New Mexico. By the end of the week, students should have completed reading all of Chapter 9.
