During the Age of Imperialism powerful nations engaged in a mad rush to extend their influence across much of the world. EU nations added to colonies they had established during the Age of Exploration by acquiring new colonies in Africa and Asia. This presentation covers the roots of Imperialism, the causes and effects of the Spanish-American War, how the U.S. extended its influence in Asia, and the U.S. in Latin America. This is an extensive PowerPoint over this time period, complete with teacher notes. Wonderful resource!
