This is a history of slavery - its origins to the 13th Amendment in the US.
The topic could encompass dozens of slides, but this lesson discusses the topic in a capsulated way. You will not find my presentations long-worded. They are succinct. This will introduce your kids to how slavery began and spread to the Americas. The slides cover the Middle Passage, slave auctions, the introduction of the Cotton Gin and how it expanded slavery in the US, through the Civil War, Emancipation Proclamation and finally the 13th Amendment.
Your students will complete a "cloze" handout as you review each slide. I tend you talk about vocabulary words as the kids write and perhaps add a few stories to draw them in.
This is a nice introduction to slavery in the United States.
