Power point #2 is titled, Citizenship – Vocabulary and contains 22 slides and covers the following:
This product is a vocabulary exercise, in power point format, that covers the entire unit on United States Citizenship. The presentation covers 18 key words on Citizenship. Each vocabulary word is presented on a separate slide and contains the vocabulary word and its common definition.
The assignment is to review each of the vocabulary words and define what they mean as associated with United States Citizenship. For instance, define the term “citizen,” and identify the legal means of becoming a U.S. citizen.
The goal is to help the students understand the vocabulary words highlighted so that they can understand what citizenship means. Sometimes vocabulary reviews can be a little stiff, so I have highly animated each of the 22 slides. They are also editable so you can feel free to adjust these slides as you need to.
Good luck and have fun with the presentation!
