This lesson introduces the United States government under the Articles of Confederation. It also points out the major weaknesses under the Articles including the limits of Congress's power, quarreling states, slavery in the Northwest Territory, and Shays's Rebellion. The PowerPoint has built-in pictures that drop down or use another neat effect, making it visually stimulating.
.ppt and .key versions are included
