This full color ,with pictures, 30 slide power-point is a great intro to the 13 Original colonies. I use this to remind students of how people first populated North America and make the connection to the 13 British colonies in America. Students will briefly review topics like: Beringia, the Vikings exploration, Silk Road problems leading to exploration,Columbus, the European race to the New World and the Triangular Trade system. After this lecture your students will remember the events that precipitated the British Colonies/Founding of the USA. This lesson also includes a map activity and all student handouts.
