In this activity students will create a political cartoon that answers the essential question: What is mercantilism?
Mercantilism is often a difficult concept for student to grasp so having them create a visual representation is very powerful. Make sure to go over the provided examples, and your students will understand what you expect of them for the activity. Explain the idea of consumption, and that they may use characters they are familiar with such as 'sponge bob' and this will soon be one of your students' favorites. The needed resources are linked or included to suppliment your own resources.
