Product Description
Investigation Style Lesson that builds inquiry! This is part of a complete unit: Causes of the Revolution Unit


In this lesson students will learn about the economic system of Mercantilism. They will be introduced to several key terms such as raw goods, manufactured goods, mercantilism, economic interdependence and the Navigation Acts. They will also get a basic overview of how mercantilism and the Navigation Acts worked. As they learn they will take guided notes. Then students will engage in an simulation activity where they make trades as colonists and experience the economic effects of mercantilism and the impact of the Navigation Acts. The lesson culminates with a reflection exercise to answer the investigation question: How did the economic system of mercantilism effect the relationship between Great Britain and the colonies?
