This handout has 2 maps in color (sorry, I couldn't find a good map of the Old and New Worlds, with all the European colonies labeled, in black and white). The first map shows the colonial possessions of the British, French, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Danish and Russians before 1800, along with the major goods traded across the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. Then there is a definition of mercantilism. There are 5 questions about how mercantilism functions. There is another map of the Columbian exchange of food, animals, and diseases on the back along with 2 questions about modern cuisine.
