This lesson concentrates on the Georgia GPS 6th Grade Social Studies Standard G10 A, and B. This lesson compares and contrasts four European countries (Italy vs. Germany and The United Kingdom vs. Russia). This lesson is full of visuals, charts, PowerPoint animations, and maps that directly target the description of the standard by the state and the teacher notes. This lesson also includes a guided notes sheet for students. The lesson does require PowerPoint 2010 or higher to view the animations correctly. If you do have an earlier version of PowerPoint it will open, but the formatting may need to be adjusted.
