Texas Power Point

  1. 1. Texas Texas Made
  2. 2. State Flower <ul><li>Named for its color and, it is said, the resemblance of its petal to a woman's sunbonnet, the bluebonnet is the state flower of Texas. </li></ul>
  3. 3. State Bird <ul><li>Texas designated the mockingbird ( Mimus polyglottos ) as official state bird in 1927. Northern Mockingbirds have extraordinary vocal abilities - they can sing up to 200 songs, including the songs of other birds, insect and amphibian sounds, even an occasional mechanical noise . </li></ul>
  4. 4. Major Industries <ul><li>milk, cheese, cows, guns, and books </li></ul>
  5. 5. Major Historical Events <ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>the Alamo </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  6. 6. State motto <ul><li>The state motto of Texas is simply &quot;friendship.&quot; The word Texas is from a Caddo Indian word &quot;teyshas&quot; (meaning &quot;friends&quot; or &quot;allies&quot; - see name origin of Texas). </li></ul>
  7. 7. Texas Capital <ul><li>The Texas Capitol is an extraordinary example of late 19th century public architecture and is widely recognized as one of the nation's most distinguished state capitols. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1986 for its &quot;significant contribution to American history.&quot; </li></ul>
  8. 8. Houston Dynamo <ul><li>The Houston Dynamos joined the USL in 1984 and were led by Jose Neto - the &quot;Babe Ruth&quot; of a previous league called the American Soccer League. The Dynamos lost in the Championship finals to Fort Lauderdale and folded after just one season. Neto was League MVP and Gary Hindley was selected Coach of the Year. The League played only half of the following 1985 season before also folding. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Houston Astros <ul><li>On April 10th the Colt .45's get off to a flying start winning their first game 11-2 over the Chicago Cubs. That first year to keep the Colt .45s from appearing bland, Judge Roy Hofheinz, the visionary who ran the franchise, got the inspired idea to deck them out in blue cowboy suits on road trips, with matching hats and boots. Passing through airports, they were a puzzling sight to travelers who did not get the connection to Texas. The players finally refused to wear the outfits and the Judge gave up. The Colts .45's would go on to finish in eighth Place with a 64-96 record. </li></ul>
