My powerpoint presentations are typically short and sweet. You will not see slides with an overwhelming amount of information. I use these presentations after my kids have had the chance to explore the topic through text and other resources.
This 15 slide presentation will give your students the essence of the Mexican American War. It discusses the causes of the war, the Bear Flag Revolt, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, the Mexican cession, and the Gadsden Purchase. In my classroom, we typically would use this for cornell note writing in their history notebook. These notes are often used to assist with writing prompts, projects, and study material for tests.
Please note that I have a graphic organizer with questions that students complete as they view the slides.
Also, please take a peek at my Mexican American War BUNDLE. It has a PowerPoint, note guide organizer, two web activities (one about the Alamo and one about the war itself - a great start to the lesson!), and a map activity. All for not much more than this product.
Thanks for stopping by!
