This PowerPoint is a wonderful way to review Chapter 1 of your Harcourt Brace Social Studies textbook, Grade 5 or as a stand-alone lesson to teach your students about the First Americans. It includes 44 interactive, fill-in-the blank slides to review the main ideas and the vocabulary of each lesson (The Search for Early Peoples, Ancient Indians, and Early Civilizations). I also have a note-taking worksheet that is available in my store, Work Less Teach More, for only $1 that makes a great companion to the PowerPoint presentation. It includes a worksheet and a teacher’s key for each of the three lessons. The PowerPoint presentation and the worksheets are editable so that you can add in your own information if you would like. I found that my students retained much more when I used this PowerPoint to reinforce the textbook lesson.
