This mini lesson on Genghis Khan is a short 19 slide overview power point with discussion questions and a timeline activity built in. Students get an overview of how Genghis came to power, what he accomplished while in power, and his legacy.
The discussion questions are fairly open ended, and include having the students determine what sort of ruler he actually was. The timeline activity is how I typically have my students go more in depth into this material. Depending on your classroom resources available, the students may need library/internet research time to complete the whole timeline activity. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
***there is pertinent information in the presenter's notes of the power point, please make sure you look at them***
