PowerPoints and resources covering all aspects of the Black Death: I believe these to be the most comprehensive and detailed available on TPT.
Download this package and not only do you save on the combined cover price of each of my Black Death PowerPoints, you will also receive free updates on any new Black Death resources I develop in the future!
!!! This package also includes my bestselling Feudalism and Manorialism PowerPoint.
Although this package is written to specifically target the Australian Curriculum Year 8 History ‘Expanding Contacts’ depth study, it is suitable for all regions.
With these PowerPoints I have aimed to take an in depth, thoroughly researched look at the topic. I have had a lot of success with this unit of work over the years teaching Year 8 History.
Each PowerPoint includes
• An accompanying worksheet to be completed either as a class or independently
• References (useful for futher information)
• links to extra resources such as YouTube clips and news articles
• extension tasks for advanced students.
