DESCRIPTION

This power point is an introductory lesson to Ancient Civilizations. I used micro soft power point to create my slide-show. It was easy to do and fun to create different animations. I had trouble uploading some images because I tried to make them larger. That is the only problem i experienced other than not being able to upload to google doc.
