What kind of HELP do you need? You need to be specific when asking questions here.
If all you do is post your entire assignment, nothing will happen since no one here will do your work for you. But if you are specific about what you don't understand about the assignment or exactly what help you need, someone might be able to assist you.

Putting together a PPT presentation requires the same level of research and organization as anything else, including essays, research papers, speeches, etc.
~~Have you done your research yet?
~~Do you have a main idea you intend to prove as you answer the specific questions?
If you haven't completed either of these tasks, I'll give you the same directions that I give to students preparing for a research paper -- except that you will be putting your ideas into much more concise form to make each slide.
1. Follow the writing process* through the prewriting phase.
2. Then instead of writing a rough draft, you'll be listing** what you'll include on each slide -- but do not skip any of the prewriting steps.
DO NOT worry about how to start it off. How can you begin a presentation that you haven't planned and drafted yet?
*Follow the writing process, whether you're writing for science, history, English, or any other subject:
Prewriting: brainstorm, research, plan, outline, thesis statement
**Writing: write first draft by starting with section II of your outline; write introduction after the body of the paper is written; write the conclusion last.
Polishing: revise, concentrating first on the sequence and details of the information, then the intro, then the concl (revision = making sure ideas are logical and sequential and support your thesis); proofread (spelling, grammar, usage, etc.)

I thank you for response. I do have some key points w/the information that I have. Just need to figure out the timeline from 1940's to 1950's. The reading that I have has the time line out of order. I just needed to know how to begin...Thanks
Did you go into the hanlib.sou.edu website I gave you above? It will help you learn to search -- or learn to search more effectively -- to make sure you have all the information you need and to make sure it's accurate.
For introductions, the same types of ideas will work for essays as for just about anything else. Try one of the following:
~~a question -- which you will answer during the course of your presentation and in your conclusion
~~a startling statistic -- which you will explain during the course of your presentation
~~a quotation from someone directly involved in the actions and period of time you are dealing with -- which you will explain during the course of your presentation
