First, give each pair of students a set of vocabulary word cards. Then, move through the slideshow to complete the various activities. (Making connections, building sentences, discussing prior knowledge, etc.) Students will talk in partners and you may also choose to have students share with the whole group after each activity.
There are slides with definition for each of the 12 words and supplementary videos and images, to be sure that all students have some understanding regardless of their prior knowledge of the subject.
This lesson pairs well with the History Alive! World Connections textbook chapter 20.
The lesson was created to align with Michigan High School World History HSCE standard 7.3.1.
