This PowerPoint contains a general overview of the American Revolution. A ton of information condensed for middle school or high school classes. Leaves plenty of room to generate teachable moments, do nows, and other activities. It discusses the following topics:
Life in the colonies - rights they had
British rule and how it changed
Effects of the French and Indian War
No taxation without representation
How the war began
Establishing order, a government, and leader for the colonies
The War itself - key battles and figures
How it ended, effects it had
Follow me if you're interested in more social studies/history PowerPoints or lesson plans. My presentations and plans can cover a wide range of age groups and always aim to stimulate the minds of the future of America.
**will post a free quiz for the first part of this PowerPoint
