I designed this PPT from a Youtube video I watched and History.com on the subject.
These Short History PPT are designed for a quick summary of the facts and don't go into great detail. They are used to be self-contained lessons that help you teach something in a couple days or a week. So your students can know the important facts that surround this historical event but not worry about specific battles or dates.
**Please Read the Teachers Notes for this PPT: There are a lot of information on this resource that is not on the slide. I tried to make it as simple as possible... If you want me to add anything please contact me.
