Product Description
This assignment is a great addition to my powerpoint on European Expansion and Business. I use this in my 7th grade social studies class, but it could be adapted for high school students.

Students are to work in partners to teach the class about a particular vocabulary term or topic. (Mercantilism, Balance of Trade, Joint-Stock Company, Free Enterprise, Capitalism, etc.)

There are three parts to their project. The lesson gives two specific aspects of the project to complete and then allows for a little creativity with the third requirement.

The goal is for students to teach rather than sit and just listen and attempt to soak in the information. Students also practice speaking in front of a group.

It typically takes 2 days (120 Minutes) to present the powerpoint, give students time to work, and complete this activity with presentations.
