This brief simulation is designed to reinforce student learning about the Colonial Economy. It is focused on Colonial South Carolina, but can also be used for any US History Course.
During this simulation, students will start with a small amount of money in Charles Town and invest it in various commodities in order to make their fortune after 4 years. This will reinforce learning about the basis of the Colonial South Carolina economy and give them insights into what some of the challenges were during the era.
This simulation should fit neatly within a single 45 minute class period.
You will need:
• A computer and projector with Microsoft Power Point
• Speakers (there is an audio component with background music and a voiceover of the slides)
• A hard copy of the worksheet provided for each student or group of students
