World History I Class Materials
Below you will find all of the lessons and notes from my World History I course. Each link should open a new window, where the file is hosted by Google Drive. Due to the fact that some material was produced using Microsoft Office, the formatting may not translate perfectly.
Google Drive is a good, free alternative to Microsoft Office, as is LibreOffice.
