This is a visually appealing and engaging PowerPoint on Western Expansion in the United States in the 1800s. It is short and to the point, yet includes all relevant information with many pictures throughout. It also contains periodic review questions to check for understanding. Each slide has animated bullet points so that the information is presented more clearly. Included in this zip file is the fill-in the blank notes sheet for students to fill out during the PowerPoint. I'd really appreciate your feedback on the PowerPoint. Thanks in advance!
