This colorful, interactive 33-slide PowerPoint presentation helps introduce students to European topics. The presentation is divided into 4 sections - European geography, climate, and economy; ancient Greece (Athens and Sparta); ancient Rome (including Caesar); and the Middle Ages (including Charlemagne and the rise of Christianity). A vocabulary review is also included, as well as a variety of H.O.T. (higher order thinking) discussion questions, a vocabulary preview slide, and a geography review graphic organizer. This presentation was originally created for use in a 6th grade social studies classroom and follows Chapter 10 of the Houghton Mifflin textbook, "Social Studies: World Cultures and Geography". The same information is also available through TpT in Promethean flipchart format.
