Scramble for Africa European Flags & Mapping Activity. Instead of the traditional color coded Scramble for Africa map activity, I put together an alternative that really gives students an understanding of what imperialism is and its effect on the continent of Africa during the Age of European Imperialism. Students draw/color the European flag into the African country it took over. They will make connections as they complete the map. They also create a map key using the European flags. I included an example in the preview. I also included a few different maps with different fonts.
