Product Description
This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on National Memorial - Creating Mount Rushmore. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

The southeastern face of Mount Rushmore in South Dakota’s Black Hills National Forest is the site of 4 gigantic carved sculptures depicting the faces of U.S. Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.

Led by the sculptor Gutzon Borglum, work on the project began in 1927 and was finally completed in 1941. Over that time period, some 400 workers erected the sculpture under dangerous conditions, removing a total of 450,000 tons of rock in order to create the enormous carved heads, each of which reached a height of 60 feet.

Known as the “Shrine of Democracy,” Mount Rushmore welcomes upwards of 2 million visitors every year, and is one of America’s most popular tourist attractions.
