Introduce your history textbook with this short PowerPoint in order to make sure that students know how to use it! This PowerPoint is made to work with the 6th grade textbook History Alive! The Ancient World, but you could just as easily modify it to fit any textbook you are currently using. I always use this lesson as part of my "Logistics Unit" at the beginning of the year, and it is very helpful so that I am not repeating myself giving instructions all throughout the year. Use in conjunction with my other listing, "Textbook Scavenger Hunt" (also available as a free download!), in order to test student's knowledge of the material after the PowerPoint.
