Product Description
This is the kind of subject I really like: something that seems so trivial but has a big impact in history. The tulipmania that swept the Dutch Republic triggererd the first modern market crash and is strikingly similar to the dot.com boom and bust of the last decade. Both involved ridiculous speculation way beyond the inherent value of the product, and both gradually rebounded to their real value. A great lesson in economic history.

This is a self-contained PowerPoint that develops slide by slide. There are also pictures with captions mixed in to illustrate the lesson and capture students’ interest. This packet doesn't yet contain a student reading, research notes, which is reflected in its cheaper price.
NOTE: If this Powerpoint doesn’t come in the new color scheme, it comes with one slide that has the whole flowchart in the newer color scheme, if you want to convert the other slides. I’m in the process of converting all the Powerpoints to the new color scheme over the next year. Check the free preview to see if this particular lesson has been converted yet.
