This power point introduces and covers in varying depths the motives for Europeans to explore, means for exploration, discovery of New World, effects of exploration, origins of the slave trade, competition for land in North America, the differences in how each European country conducted its international affairs, an intro to mercantilism, and more!
This file has 2 versions of the power point, a high school and a middle school version and they are both provided in power point and keynote for your convenience. The middle school version has a few activities built into the slides which would be appropriate (and FUN!) for high school students.
***there is pertinent information in the presenter's notes of the power point, please make sure you look at them***
