Students will understand the causes of European imperialism and examine the reasons why some nations were more dominant than others.
This fun cooperative learning simulation game to help your students understand the Age of Imperialism!
Each group simulates a different country and must conquer "territory" - which are items in your classroom. The only catch is that the rules are different for each group - just like how some countries like England could conquer so much territory, while others were unprepared for the land scramble.
My classes always have a lot of fun with this classroom activity. The game definitely helps students to understand how certain countries (England for example) conquered so much land while others like the United States were late to the game.
The download includes detailed teacher directions along with 5 sets of student directions for 5 different groups.
An editable Google Doc version of the activity is also included featuring recommended video links and a reading to debrief for after the game.
This resource can also be downloaded at a discount as part of the my Age of Imperialism Unit Bundle!
