Product Description

This product is intended to demonstrate how Triangular Trade worked in the the 17th and 18th centuries.

Materials Included:

- Country Profile Sheets

- Colony Profile Sheets

- Raw Material Cards

- Instruction sheet

Teaching Strategy:

- Note: Students should have been introduced to information on Triangular Trade and Mercantilism preceding this activity.

- Divide the class into teams of 6

- Give each group a Country Profile Sheet - have students read the information for their country

- Students will then be given their colony - this can be done randomly or strategically. - It is often more impactful to the lesson to have groups actually go out and “explore’ their colony. I have given students numbers and then put colonies around the room with only numbers attached to them.

- The colony envelope should include the colony profile and the appropriate amount of raw material cards.

- When all groups have their colonies and have read all things about their country and colony then they should form a strategy for trading to get their necessary resources.

- Groups will then start trading with other groups to get the resources they need.

- Leave time to debrief and possibly play again.

- Adjust rules as you see the need.
