Using a website from Annenberg Learner, students take the role of the owner of a large merchant ship and sail around the world trading goods with other countries. Their goal is to make as much profit as possible. Their success depends on their planning and choices. As students go through the online simulation they will identify their choices and justify their reasons for those choices. They will even use math to calculate their revenue, expenses and their profit or loss. They will then reflect on their level of success and brainstorm some ways they could improve on their next trade mission.
