This excellent worksheet is great for homework or classwork. It provides four problems relating to the start of the slave trade. Students must match the problems to a solution and a reason that the solution works.
I enjoy using this activity as a starter because it helps students think about the reasons for the slave trade instead of just memorizing facts. This mindset shift allows for more building and greater knowledge in the long run.
