PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a PowerPoint presentation on the First Americans. It covers GA Standard SS4H1 The student will describe how early Native American cultures developed in North America. I've made it very practical and included lots of pictures and student-friendly websites for lectures in the classroom. I have also attach a "field guide" sample so students can take notes and a printable performance task on the whole unit.

Love this, I think this map is amazing, I had never seen this version of the U.S. map. My professor loved this, I included it in my power point presentation. She asked where I found this map.

Hi There, I purchased the Explore the first Americans/Native American Tribes back in June, and with the new school year here I was planning to use it in the upcoming weeks. I am unable to click on the hyperlinks provided in the slideshow... Am I doing something wrong?!!
Thanks so much for your help!

This seems too much like the freebie at the Georgia DOE Frameworks site. You didn't even change the font or some of the text on the slides. You did change the map,buttons, and pictures.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Since I am in a different state, we have different standards. I just thought an Eastern Woodland tribe would round out your coverage of the United States very nicely and make the ppt more applicable to a wider range of teachers.

The navigation button issue is not important, but when using my smartboard any touch to the screen will advance the PowerPoint to the next slide. Students are not careful about where they press! :-) (Also, I don't usually keep the PPT arrow navigator pop-up open when running PPTs on my SmartBoard.) I can disable the advance slide feature myself on the PPT, so that issue can be worked around. I just thought a "home" or "map" button for easy return would be nice.

The field guide & performance tasks documents are not actually in the PowerPoint, so no, they do not open. I see that another teacher also mentioned that. I think those hyperlinks in the PowerPoint are linked to documents on your hard-drive, so that is why they are not working for us. Of course, all the hyperlinks to internet websites work just fine.

I hope that explains my earlier post more fully. I DO like the PPT.

Thanks so much. There can always be impovements and I always welcome suggestions. I will have to get in touch with tech to find out why the attachments are not working. In the meantime, if you will email me at maysonr@bellsouth.net, I can get those to you.

Thanks

On  November 5, 2011,  Ohioholly  asked:
Some Suggestions for your 1st Americans ppt: it's not obvious at first that the tribe names lead to an internet connection - perhaps add a note saying "click name to learn more"?; Add a button on each tribe page to allow return to main map (it just advances to next tribe page now, so if you don't start at the Seminole, you miss several tribes); Add a northern eastern woodland tribe which built longhouses (Iroquois? Algonquin?); Can you add the documents that are supposed to be linked (field guide, performance task doc) as free downloads on your purchase area?

On  November 5, 2011rmason answered:
Thank you for your suggestions. I am not sure I understand the issues you are having with the PowerPoint. I have created the PowerPoint to meet Georgia Standards for 4th grade and all of the Tribes studied for that grade are included in the PowerPoint. You should not miss any tribes as they are all on the map on the first slide which you can always jump back to during the slide show. Are you unable to open the attached documents (field guide/performance task)? Please let me know.
Thanks,
Rose
