My seventh graders have a difficult time understanding a new country just from reading the textbook material, so I created these accompanying Power Point presentations for alternate days. The kids found that by seeing photos from the actual places and matching them to the facts they had read about the day before, they understood the places better.
"Ireland" highlights: Physical Landscape, Religion's Ties to Culture, Potato Famine, Irish Traditions, Schools, Sights To See, Food, Leprechaun History, and Citations.
I have many other Power Points on other countries as well. Don't forget to check out my store!
