This is a beautiful PowerPoint presentation that covers the most powerful African Empires from 300-1600. These wonderful, visually engaging slides cover the empires of Axum (Aksum), Ghana, Mali, Great Zimbabwe, Songhai, and more.
The lesson includes maps, as well as fantastic pictures that highlight the beauty of Africa and the accomplishments of these kingdoms. All of the notes are simple for students to understand and highlight the essential things students must know based on state and Common Core Standards.
The PowerPoint concludes with an embedded Youtube video on the influence of Islam on these empires and an exit ticket for students to complete. Thanks for looking!
