“Gettysburg-A lesson in Cause and Effect” started out as a simple lesson on Gettysburg and eventually became a lesson on Cause and Effect, using Gettysburg as the example. A lot of the slides are meant to be interactive with the class. They help make decisions. Make sure you go through the slides first so you understand how this works. Add some pictures and you will have a decent ½ hour lesson.
I used this on a unit on the civil war ( of course), but I also used it in the beginning days of a US History course.
