These power points provide an introductory overview of Spanish, French, and British colonization of North America, with the primary focus being on Great Britain. Topics also briefly introduce reasons for exploration and colonization, interactions with Native Americans and all 3 European powers, slavery in the English colonies, differences in life for men and women, and foreshadowing the reasons for increasing tension between the colonists and Great Britain. Recap questions are scattered throughout the slides to help students review the information.
This is an overview to allow for differences between districts and textbooks. There are two power points in the file (one is 63 slides, the other is 51), one just on British colonization and one on all 3. There is a power point and keynote file for each one for your convenience.
