This is the fourth lesson in a scheme of work about the Atlantic Slave Trade. This lesson in particular focuses on the middle passage and conditions for slaves on the ships.
This lesson includes -
* Discussion of the conditions for slaves on the slave ships.
* Source analysis activity for pupils to gather information about the conditions on the slave ships.
* Source activity looking at the usefulness and reliability of sources explaining aspects of the middle passage.
This lesson was used for a year 9 scheme of work in the UK but could easily be adapted for other curricula.
