The following is a 10 slide PPT which discusses the time leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917, the Russian Revolution itself, the Transitional Government, the Russian Civil War, and the aftermath and results. Each slide has multiple pictures and graphics which will keep the students attention while they are learning this information. Two slides include links to You Tube clips which are each 9-10 min. long. The first link covers the Russian Revolution of 1917 and aftermath and the second link covers the Civil War and aftermath.
I pair this PPT with my Russian Revolution Newscast Activity (which is available in my store) which allows students to take the information they took notes on and learned as well as the information they visually saw and heard in the videos and create and develop a Newscast presentation to deliver to the class and allow the teacher to assess how much the students have learned.
