This highly interactive group-based game helps students to understand the economic and political factors that influenced the development of colonies in the New World. Not only will students learn about how trade, alliances, wars, and geography played a role in the early development of North America, but they will develop communication, planning, collaboration, and leadership skills, all of which blend nicely with schools who have targeted goals in 21st century learning initiatives. An optional reflective writing assignment can also make this game meet Common Core guidelines.
This game was developed over eight years of in-class testing and is engaging, informative, and fun. You won't be disappointed, and students of all ages will love it!
