This exciting unit on the Early River Valley Civilizations contains a super-deluxe, dynamic 58 slide PowerPoint that shows students how Mesopotamia, Egypt, China, and Indus River Valley Civilizations developed in their own unique ways and the causes of the decline of each. The PowerPoint is filled with exciting pictures, engaging photographs, and interesting maps with teacher notes so extensive that the PowerPoint can be read like a textbook! Cloze passages (can be used as guided notes) accompany every slide and lesson reviews that gives students a chance to reflect back and respond to each chapter of the PowerPoint.
