This is an animated, power point presentation on the first or native Americans in the United States. The presentation has 22 slides, all of which are "editable" so you can adjust the presentation if you so choose.
Native Americans have lived in what is now the United States for more than 10,000 years. White settlers have only been living in the United States for a little more than 500 years. These Americans had no written communication so it is difficult to know much about them. What remains is a few animal and human bones, some basic tools, and bits of pottery.
Historians have surmised that the first Americans probably migrated on foot from Siberia, across the bearing straits into what is now present day Alaska. The most recent Ice Age occurred 30,000 years and water levels dropped by 200 feet making it possible for animals to migrate Asia to North America.
The presentation covers the following:
