This dynamic presentation on the Peopling of the Americas provides visuals, video links, guided notes, and reflection questions to keep your students engaged for the entire lesson. Bring prehistory to life for your class!

How people first came to the Americas is a mystery that archaeologists and scientists are continuing to investigate. One thing is certain; we do not yet have all the answers.

This presentation examines the following topics:
