A PowerPoint file containing 13 presentations for a World History unit titled “The Age of New Imperialism.”
The PowerPoint file is 117 slides in length. It includes 13 individual lessons, which in my classroom provides for 16 days of instruction:

Also included in this download is a 15-page set of visuals and activities to accompany the 13 lessons. In my classroom, students take Cornell style notes on the right side in their interactive notebooks; their corresponding visuals pages are glued on the left. These activities are completed before (vocabulary), during (visual labeling), and after (writing, thinking maps, etc.) completion of the presentation.
