This PowerPoint is about the country of Russia. Specifically how it was formed and evolved over time. It also contains things about Russian holidays, and other cultural gems. It 33 slides of great information that is suited for the minds of grades 2-4. There is also a ballet activity at the end of the PowerPoint that teaches the kids the 5 positions of ballet and two other basic moves. My class loved doing this! I love these country studies because they don't take more than 20 - 30 minutes in class! They are always completely engaged, and asking great questions all along the way!
