Product Description

This map activity allows students to identify the major countries that explored the early modern world. The activity tasks students to identify the major explorers for each identified country that explored, as well as the continent(s) that they explored, and the major trade cities. They complete both a chart outlining this information as well as draw and label this information on a blank world map.

This activity is designed to align with Chapters 21-22 of Traditions and Encounters, Bentley 5th edition. The six major countries responsible for exploration in the Early Modern Period are included in this activity.

This activity correlates to the following Key Concepts for AP World History:

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.
