The following is an 8 slide PPT which covers the main ideas, terms, people, events, and outcomes of German Unification. This PPT begins with Germany prior to unification, introduces nationalism and Otto von Bismarck, Franco-Prussian War and other events leading to unification, actual German Unification, then outcomes.
After I use this PPT and Italian Unification PPT, I assign students a graphic organizer to compare and contrast unifications. I also use this PPT in my Nationalism in the 1800's Unit with Italian Unification PPT, Russia in the 1800's PPT, France & Britain in the 1800's PPT, Duel Monarchy PPT, and Balkans PPT. I end this unit with a student application project. All of the above are available for download in my store.
