This lesson starts with a short picture essay on how the French celebrated their revolution while it was still in its moderate phase. It then describes how the revolution became increasingly chaotic with rampant inflation and war against Austria and Prussia. It ends with the overthrow of the monarchy and establishment of the Republic.
In the PowerPoint, the color flowchart develops slide by slide while other notes for the students scroll down the side. There are also extensive pictures with captions mixed in to illustrate the lesson and capture students’ interest. This packet also contains a student reading, flowchart, and the author’s own research notes which contain lots of details and interesting trivia.
