This PowerPoint covers the Southern Colonies, including their founding, growth, and key characteristics. Each visually-engaging slide includes simple notes for students to better understand the essential information.
An editable guided notes worksheet is also included!
Each of these topics are discussed in the PowerPoint:
• Jamestown and the Virginia Company
• Bacon's Rebellion
• Lord Baltimore and the Province of Maryland
• The Carolinas
• James Oglethorpe and Georgia
• The Headright System
• The Slave Trade
• Plus more!
This is an excellent overview of the most essential aspects of each colony. It does not go in-depth on the nuances of each colonies differences, but is editable if you want to provide greater background to your students. I have fine tuned it over years with my US History classes and students are consistently engaged during the presentation. The guided notes pages are also an excellent tool to keep students focused on your key points and not be overwhelmed with writing notes.
If you need companion PowerPoint presentations for the rest of the 13 Colonies, check out each of these:

All of these PowerPoints along with an interactive notebook, Google Drive, and more activities can be found in this 13 Colonies Complete Unit Bundle
