This 27 page PowerPoint includes great imagery and embedded notes for the teacher.
Detailed notes give a lot of background and slides allow for the teacher to add her own personality to the presentation.
Slides include two handouts (4 and 2 pages) and 4 poster sized images to print for display in the classroom during the project.
This project can be done in two parts in a few days or take up to two weeks.
