This lesson introduces the many important historical figures which make Connecticut unique. The information is presented in a Powerpoint format with videos hyperlinked within the presentation. Historical figures include: Nathan Hale, Prudence Crandall, Charles Ives, General Israel Putnam, P.T. Barnum, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Mark Twain. There is also a post-activity (downloadable) in my store - it's great for a checkup.
