I used this powerpoint in a unit about the Byzantine Empire and Russia. I goes in to detail about Justinian and his rule. The split of the church, the Iconoclastic Controversy, the decline of the empire, and Kievan Russia.
The following essential questions are covered in the power point:
What factors contributed to the growth and strength of the Byzantine Empire?
Explain the rise of Kievan Russia.
It has a question and answer section at the end.
