Free Beautiful Age of Enlightenment Presentation Lesson

The Age of Enlightenment has always been an important but dry topic for my students. To help make things more engaging, I created this beautiful PowerPoint Lesson which you can download for FREE here.

Students create a foldable book in which we draw pictures and take notes on 5 Enlightenment thinkers: Hobbes, Voltaire, Locke, Montesquieu, & Rousseau. This visually stunning powerpoint contains the process for making the book as well as notes, quotes, and an exit ticket for students.

It covers all Common Core Standards material from World History on the Enlightenment, but in a simple way for students to understand.

This fantastic FREE lesson can be downloaded here.

As a culminating activity, my classes complete the "Enlightenment Salon Party" activity which you can download here. This allows them to think critically about each philosophers ideas, find similarities, and use real-world processing.

Thank you for looking and hope you enjoy!
