Product Description
The Colombian Exchange Webquest and Video Analysis with Key - this is a 10 page document that contains a webquest and a completed teachers key for easy marking. It contains 26 questions based on a Crash Course World History video and an online map.

Students will be introduced to the topic of the Colombian Exchange by first watching the Crash Course video: The Colombian Exchange. The video will describe in detail the four main factors of the Colombian Exchange, the exchange of diseases, plants, animals, and people. Disease and its disastrous impacts on the American Indians is examined in great detail and the human toll of the Exchange is put into perspective for students. The animals and foods which flowed between the Old World and New World are listed and students realize how many things they eat today originated on completely different continents in the past. Finally, the human migrations of the Exchange, European settlers and African slaves coming to the New World, are shown to have a huge impact on world history. Following the video, students will proceed to an online map which goes into more detail regarding the diseases, animals, and plants which traveled between the continents. They will be posed with a question concerning which world would they rather live in if the Colombian Exchange never happened. Your students will have an engaging and thoughtful task set before them in order to make their own choice and defend it.

This webquest can be easily used as an introduction to the topic, a study guide, or a quick and easy sub plan.
