Students will take on the role of a country in a race to colonize the new world in this mercantilism simulation. Students will unknowingly simulate the race which was colonization. As the teacher you can create a series of questions for your students to answer as a review of a previously studies topic. Each round of questions the students answer correctly answer, they can go colonize (aka remove raffle tickets off the board) a part of the new world. Students loved this activity and have asked me several times if we can play it again. Use this powerpoint along with my mercantilism simulation documents.
