The "Manifest Destiny and the Acquisition of Land" differentiated instruction PowerPoint is beautifully done. It has vocabulary and an essential question. It is loaded with links and maps. There are two different ability levels included; basic and enriched. If you have a co-teacher, you can split the class and allow the enriched students to do more critical thinking and go into more detail and the basic students to do partner review after each slide for repetition. If there is no co-teacher available then you can choose the version that works the best for each of your classes. The content is as follows:

Acquisition of Louisiana
Lewis and Clark
Acquisition of Land in the North
Acquisition of Florida
Acquisition of Texas
Acquisition of the Northwest
Acquisition of the Southwest
Mexican War

There is a differentiated instruction lesson plan that goes along with this PowerPoint but it is sold separately. It includes the following:
