This download on the Founding Fathers contains an amazing PowerPoint on 7 of America's most famous Founding Fathers filled with Harry Potter-style "magical portraits" that move, blink, smile, and look around your classroom!

Turn what could traditionally be a boring PowerPoint into a dynamic activity that will engage your visual learners and have your students gasping when they see Thomas Jefferson smile and wink at them! I promise they will be howling with delight!

This 10 slide PowerPoint includes a warm up, notes, and 8 moving video portraits of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Ben Franklin, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, George Mason, and James Monroe! The videos are also separate files that you can insert anywhere or use in any other resource.
