I am very proud of this learning unit! It encompasses learning expectations for a variety of grades and curriculum areas including: History, Language, Geography, Mathematics, and Art. In this unit, I've designed a variety of learning that lead the students through the research and analysis of existing countries, the creation of their own world (where they emerge as world leaders), and finally culminating in the World Trade Simulation. This file contains the assignment sheet and description of learning tasks. As well, this documents contains teachers notes, graphic organizers for student tracking during the simulation and finally the trade resource templates required for use during the simulation. Please collect all the required files and enjoy! I'd love your feedback on this program as I have worked very hard and truly believe that this is an authentic learning experience for the kids that they will not forget!
