PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Mercantilism Simulation - Activity - The Thirteen Colonies

This lesson provides a fun educational simulation for students to experience trade during the age of mercantilism. The simulation is set up so that they will see the impact of the rules created by England to limit trade, and increase profit. This has really helped my students to visualize a difficult economic concept. Students get to move around the room, trade goods, maximize their profits, and potentially smuggle! This lesson plan also included two exit tickets to check for student understanding.

My students also had lots of fun, and begged for more lessons "like that trading one" for the rest of the year!

This document includes a 2 page detailed lesson plan, all the required materials for the trading simulation, and a historical background which explains all the necessary concepts.

The lesson in linked to NYS Social Studies Standards, but you could easily cut and paste in your own standards for your state.

NYS Standard - 7.3a.2 - Students will examine the changing economic relationship between the colonies and Great Britain, including mercantilism and the practice of salutary neglect.

This zip file includes a word version (fully editable), a PDF version, and a link to a google doc version.
