Product Description
This map activity allows students to review the major world regions and identify examples of societies, cities, empires, and/or civilizations that existed during the Early Modern Era (Era 4). After labeling the map, students then use the map to answer four analysis questions, which focus on identifying major changes and continuities from the era, as well as on trade during the era.

Two files are included in the zip file: map directions and a blank world regions map.

This activity correlates to the following Key Concepts for AP World History:
4.1.I - Existing regional patterns of trade intensified in the context of the new global circulation of goods
4.1.III - Remarkable new transoceanic maritime reconnaissance occurred in this period.
4.1.IV - The new global circulation of goods was facilitated by chartered European monopoly companies and the flow of silver from Spanish colonies in the Americas to purchase Asian goods for the Atlantic markets. Regional markets continued to flourish in Afro-Eurasia by using established commercial practices and new transoceanic shipping services developed by European merchants.
4.3.II - Imperial expansion relied on the increased use of gunpowder, cannons, and armed trade to establish large empires in both hemispheres.
4.3.III - Competition over trade routes, state rivalries, and local resistance all provided significant challenges to state consolidation and expansion.
