This 14-slide presentation introduces students to the reasons the Articles of Confederation were written. It also explains how the Articles' weaknesses set the stage for the new nation to struggle until the Constitution was written.
Thanks for this powerpoint it did a nice job introducing the Articles of Confederation at the beginning of our Constitution Unit, my students enjoyed the humor and illustrations. Nicely done.

I really appreciated this PPT. It helped me to introduce the Articles of Confederation to my students. This was the first time I had to teach the U.S. Constitution and I found this PPT very helpful as informational background. Thank you.
