Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To learn about conditions on board a slave ship, and the method by which Africans were sold into slavery.

TIME:
1 class period

In this lesson, students read a story about the Atlantic slave trade (also known as the transatlantic slave trade) with missing words, names, and terms. For each blank space, two possible answers are given in parentheses. Each class member needs to decide which words in the parentheses should be written in the spaces in order to correctly complete the sentences.

Have the students work individually during class time. They will learn a great deal about the Atlantic slave trade.

Next, in a section entitled "Gustavus Vassa Crosses the Atlantic," class members read a primary source account that is one of the few first-hand descriptions of a slave ship crossing the ocean. Once finished, students will answer questions. Some can be answered using specific information from the reading. Others require critical thinking skills.

Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
