Product Description
This is my newest project for my World History / U.S. History students. In essence, this project has students working collaboratively to research and subsequently create a "Traveling Trunk" through which they create actual artifacts to represent the culture, economics, and/or political structure of a country that was colonized - both BEFORE and AFTER the act. This helps them to visualize the change that occurred due to colonization as well as to make evaluations/judgments about the quality of such change.

The project is very "HANDS ON", consisting of the creation of such artifacts as a timeline, cultural goods from the indigenous culture that represent their way of life beforehand, cultural goods that represent the reason(s) why a larger country took over, a map (geography), and more.

I used this as a means of teaching my students about imperialism/colonization through active learning and discovery. At the end, each team presented their trunk, spoke about their artifacts, and then passed them around for the class to examine and question.

I taught lessons in-between "project days" and in all, it took about 2 weeks to complete the entire project. However, it can be completed in a week (a few class meetings and homework) if you focus solely on the project. It is listed for $20.00 because it truly is all-inclusive and can be utilized time and time again.
