The Civil War Begins
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 Causes of the Civil War: "The War Begins".
These history presentations are designed to give students an overview of the start of the American Civil War. Students will be shown maps, animations and descriptions of some of the major events: Americans Choosing Sides, Attack on Fort Sumter and Union and Confederate Preparations for War.
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: Confederates seizing federal property, Seward's Plan, Fort Sumter, States Secede, Border States, Northern Resources, Southern Resources, Offense Vs Defense, Cotton Diplomacy, U.S. Sanitary Commission.
