This is a visually appealing and engaging PowerPoint on the Age of Exploration/Discovery of the 1400s and 1500s. It is short and to the point, yet includes all relevant information including periodic review questions. Each slide has animated bullet points so that the information is presented more clearly. Included in this zip folder is the fill-in the blank notes sheet for students to fill out while reviewing the PowerPoint and the answer sheet for the teacher. I'd appreciate your feedback on the PowerPoint if you had the time. Thanks in advance!
