Engaging History Presentations
Mr. Harms has designed a number of PowerPoint and Keynote presentations with Social Studies Concepts and Critical Thinking Questions to help students understand history. Designed by a teacher for teachers, this PowerPoint focuses on "Trouble In Kansas".
This presentation is designed to give students an overview of the escalation of hostilities in the Kansas Territory over the slavery issue. Students will be shown maps, animations and descriptions of some of the major events dealing with the Kansas-Nebraska Act.
The presentation is totally customizable, allowing you to add your own pictures, graphics and animations to take what we've done even farther.
What is your time worth? Our basic pricing system for History Presentations is 10 cents per slide. Some title slides may only take 30 seconds to create, but complex slides with animations and coordinated builds for complicated topics may take 30 minutes or more. It's not unusual for a presentation to take between 3 and 7 hours of work. What could you do with 6 or 7 free hours?
Topics include: Election of 1852, Franklin Pierce, The Whig Party, Sectionalism, Kansas-Nebraska Act, Transcontinental Railroad, Bleeding Kansas, Attack on Lawrence, John Brown, The Pottowatomie Massacre, Charles Sumner, Preston Brooks.
Included in The Presentation Package:
