This PowerPoint slide show is all about Russia. I divided the slideshow into 5 days, however, you will want to use about two weeks to go over the slideshow and create a project (e.g. poster) at the end of this mini-unit on Russia. The slideshow includes facts about Russia with supporting photographs and links to coloring pages and various YouTube links to share with students. Your students will love to see all the vivid photographs and watch videos as well as learn a few words in Russian. They will be fascinated with the facts. Also, if you have visitors coming in, they will love that you are incorporating technology in your lesson.
I use it with my kids as part of a Thematic Unit (use it during Social Studies, Writing and more). My students have a nonfiction booklet with lines and picture boxes, which they add as they learn about the country and it later becomes their book about the country. They LOVE IT! At the end of the unit as a culminating project, I have kids create either a poster, brochure or any type of project promoting the country.
I added few slides to the sample for you. There are more wonderful slides in the product. Enjoy!
