This is a powerpoint presentation that I have used with my grade 8 Social Studies Class in Alberta. The material connects well with the Social Studies textbook: " Worldviews: Contact and Change," and will easily support the Social Studies curriculum. Everything is built and ready to go, you will only need to add your questions and assessments.
There are 51 slides that include youtube clips on the Renaissance, various pictures that support and slides with pertinent information to the Alberta Grade 8 Social Studies Curriculum.
The Sources are all sited at the end.
