Fort Bend Connection

Teachers: We know things look a little different in the classroom this year and we want to help! Together with the Fort Bend History Association and the Fort Bend Museum, our team has launched the Fort Bend Connection project to bring Texas and Fort Bend County history to your classroom this year. The plan has multiple components tailored to your curriculum, including free educational videos and worksheets aligned with TEKS objectives and rentable boxes that include a number of different hands-on historical activities.
