This download includes a powerpoint lesson to go with the Atlas worksheets also available in my store. Use the slides to teach the students how to use the Children's Illustrated Atlas. Review maps, map legends, timelines. Learn how to read charts for information. Students will end the lesson by completing a worksheet to find particular facts about a specific state. The last 2 slides are for the worksheet assignments. There are 2 assignments, so this lesson can be conducted for 2 days. I use this lesson with my 4th and 5th grade students.
