Product Description

Sharecropping Simulation is a fun dice game that can be used to teach students how the sharecropping system worked and how those who were a part of the system were often taken advantage of. During the activity, students will work as a sharecropper for a wealthy plantation owner. Students will roll dice to find out how much tobacco they are able to harvest each year. Then, students will calculate how much money they made from the harvest and subtract what is owed to the plantation owner. Hopefully, students will be able to save enough money to leave and start their own small farm!

The following materials are included with this simulation activity:

  • Teacher Instructions
  • Student Instructions
  • Chart to record monthly profits and losses
  • Reflection worksheet

Sharecropping Simulation combines history and math skills! Students will add, subtract, and multiply with decimals and whole numbers to complete the activity. This simulation activity is not only fun, but is a great way to help students gain a better understanding of how the sharecropping system worked!
