Product Description
OBJECTIVE::
To understand how developments in Europe led to the establishment of colonial empires in North America and South America.

TIME:
2 class periods

Students begin by reading about the events which made it possible for Europeans to discover and colonize the New World. This background information is followed by a Map Skills exercise, True/False questions, and Completion questions.

The class is then divided into small groups for the playing of THE EXPLORERS GAME! Players will hope to cross the Atlantic Ocean without experiencing a bad storm, a shortage of food, or some other hardship. Each group will have a winner. Complete game rules are provided on the lesson pages. More information on how to conduct the game can be found in the Teacher Instructions.

The lesson ends with students doing a fun map exercise that locates colonial empires in the New World.

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.
