The Age of Enlightenment has always been an important but dry topic for my students. To help make things more engaging, this PowerPoint leads students in creating a foldable book with pictures and notes on 5 Enlightenment thinkers: Hobbes, Voltaire, Locke, Montesquieu, & Rousseau.
This visually stunning PowerPoint contains the process for making the book as well as notes, quotes, and an exit ticket for students. It covers all Common Core Standards material from World History on the Enlightenment, but in a simple way for students to understand.
NEWLY UPDATED: Totally updated with fonts and better animations and transitions!!
As a culminating activity, my classes complete the Enlightenment Salon Party activity which you can download here
. This allows them to think critically about each philosophers ideas, find similarities, and use real-world processing.
An excellent way to review this period is this Enlightenment Review Guide Bundle
which includes a set of resources to help students process what they learned.
