My 7th grade students are far more successful when they can see visual representations of people and places, and not just read about them in a textbook. I created these Power Point presentations to follow up reading selections to give them a stronger sense of various regions' geographies.
"The Balkan Peninsula" highlights: Location, Early History, 20th Century, Physical geography, Resources, Government, Food, Focus on Desserts, Trivia, and Citations.
This presentation also has a graphic organizer (Free in my TpT store) that help students keep track of what they are viewing.
I have many other country Power Points and resources. Check out my store!
