This bundle includes a 13 slide powerpoint with accompanying guided notes, a timeline activity, and quiz/key. The quiz is fill in the blank and correlates directly to aspects of the powerpoint that have ASTERISKS next to them. Emphasize this as you teach so students underline/highlight, etc. those parts of the notes. This means you don't have to make a review sheet, because the students already know what will be measured for the quiz!
The PowerPoint is loaded with cool animations, pictures, and interesting facts/vital content for students. It hits on key components of Reconstruction such as questions surrounding the newly freed slaves and how to incorporate them and their former masters (the South) back into the country. It is neatly organized and flows well. These notes are concise allowing the students to focus on the lesson. They also have built in bellworks and focus questions. Please note they contain the content, but not quotes, supplemental information, etc. Basically, everything you need without dragging the kids down in detail.
