Product Description
OBJECTIVE::
To understand the effect of mercantilism on European countries and their colonies.

TIME:
2 class periods

The activity begins by reading with students the background information about how the Age of Exploration caused trade to grow between Europe and other parts of the world. Class members then need about 15 minutes to do six follow-up questions that require short written answers. Student responses can be briefly discussed.

Next, it is time to play THE GAME OF MERCANTILISM!

The class is divided into five teams representing Portugal, Spain, France, England, and The Netherlands. The object of the game is for each country to gain control over trade in various products from around the world. These products, which are shown on a map on the last lesson page, were carried to Europe by merchant ships during the 1500s, 1600s, and 1700s –– the period of mercantilism.

Complete game rules are provided on the lesson pages.

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 or used as a review exercise later in the school year.
