Mercantilism Cooperative Learning Document Analysis Project & Presentation
This awesome lesson plan on mercantilism has students analyzing 8 primary and secondary sources related to mercantilism to come to an understanding of the economic policy as well as its benefits and drawbacks.
Working in groups, the students use the included chart to analyze the documents together and determine if mercantilism should be the economic policy for their country in 1750. They then make a presentation to their country's leader on whether to adopt the economic policy.
This is an engaging cooperative learning activity that will have your students thinking deeply about mercantilism and end with them understanding one of the trickier concepts in World History!
An editable Google Docs version of the activity is also included!
