This is a short but concise set of PowerPoint notes that deals with the Articles of Confederation. Often the overlooked document in American History, the Articles of Confederation is a very important document to teach in the classroom as it not only sets up the core ideals of the Constitution but it also allows students to understand the base foundations of early government in our country.
In these notes students will not only learn the components of the Articles of Confederation but they will understand why it ultimately failed in this country. Embedded within these notes are complementary pictures and animations to bring the notes alive for both the student and the teacher.
While many teachers overlook the Articles of Confederation, I feel that it is an integral and vital component of not only the American History curriculum but also teaching the Constitution. Using these PowerPoint notes will help you accomplish this goal. I stand by my curriculum materials, specifically the notes I have created over the years. Thank you for taking the time to look at my store.
