My powerpoint presentations are typically short and sweet. You will not see slides with an overwhelming amount of information. I use these presentations after my kids have had the chance to explore the topic through text and other resources.
This 17 slide presentation will give your students the essence of the causes and effects of the War of 1812. It begins with the Embargo Act of 1807, then discusses the causes (trade interference, impressment, Native American/British alliance) of the war and its legacies (patriotism, manufacturing increases, Native American resistance, and the desire to move into the American frontier). In my classroom, we typically would use this for cornell note writing in their history notebook. These notes are often used to assist with writing prompts, projects, and study material for tests.
If note taking is not of interest, please see my War of 1812 graphic organizer that is meant to go along with this product.
