Colonial History: Triangular Trade

Students used the internet and textbook to explore the Triangular Trade that took place between Europe, the Americas, and Africa. They identified the objects (and slaves) that were traded along the route. Next the students created maps that showed the routes and the items (and slaves) traded.

Here is a finished map. The students only spent two days on this assignment, only a few hours total. Students can create content that reflects important historical information in an appropriate form rather quickly.
