1 Welcome back, future leaders! For today’s warm-up please do the following: Grab your student log and notebook from the crates. Write in today’s date and objective on your student log. Take out your homework – (the Columbian Exchange packet) Open your notebook and respond to the following prompts: Today we’re going to be talking about the origins of the trans- Atlantic slave trade. What other times have we talked about slavery in this class? Why would people keep slaves?

2 Welcome back, future leaders! For today’s warm-up please do the following: Grab a fresh student log and your notebook from the crates. Write in today’s date and objective on your student log. Draw an X through today’s homework box. Open your notebook and respond to the following prompt: Cultural diffusion is the spread of ideas, customs and beliefs from one culture to another. Keep that in mind when you’re answering the following question: How would American culture be different if African slaves had never been brought here?

4 World History with Mr. Golden __________________________________________________________ The Triangle Trade

5 Objective: ________________________________________________________ FLWBAT describe the exchanges of the “Triangle Trade”

6 Agenda: ________________________________________________________ - Review - Triangle Trade diagram - Notes - Amistad - Primary source analysis - Journal creation - We’re done!

7 The Triangle Trade: ________________________________________________________ CARIBBEAN ISLANDS AFRICA EUROPE Slaves Raw Materials Manufactured Goods

8 The Triangle Trade: ________________________________________________________ 60% 35% 65% 30% 5%

9 Enslaved Peoples: ________________________________________________________ These are the best estimates that we have for the numbers in the slave trade: 30 million people are taken from their homes in Africa o 10 million died resisting capture or awaiting sale o 10 million died traveling across the Atlantic Ocean o 10 million survive the trip, and are sold into slavery in the Americas

10 The Slave Trade: ________________________________________________________ 1.Capture: o African tribes on the coast cooperate with Europeans o Inland tribes are captured and sold into slavery. Castle-like prisons are built on costal cities to hold the captured tribesmen until they can be sold as slaves and shipped overseas.

11 The Slave Trade: ________________________________________________________ 1.Capture: o African tribes on the coast cooperate with Europeans o Inland tribes are captured and sold into slavery. 2. Over the Ocean: o A long journey across the Atlantic Ocean (about 2 months) o slaves per boat

12 The Slave Trade: ________________________________________________________ 1.Capture: o African tribes on the coast cooperate with Europeans o Inland tribes are captured and sold into slavery 2. Over the Ocean: o A long journey across the Atlantic Ocean (about 2 months) o slaves per boat 3. Training: o 4-5 months of training on the “how tos” of slavery

13 Thinking caps on! ________________________________________________________ Don’t write anything down – just think! o How did slave traders decide which Africans to capture? o Given the amount of people that died, and what slaves had to endure, what do you think was going through the minds of the slave traders? Is this thing on?

14 A Basic Example: ________________________________________________________ CARIBBEAN ISLANDS AFRICA EUROPE Slaves Molasses Rum and Weapons

15 Growth of Slavery: ________________________________________________________ How did slavery grow? African slaves were preferred because: o There was a great need for farm labor o It was difficult to Africans to “run away” compared to Native Americans o Captured slaves were “selected” to be stronger, healthier, and often already trained in agriculture. By 1860, there are 4 million slaves in the Southern U.S…. This makes up 1/3 of the population of those states!

16 Primary Sources: ________________________________________________________ Read through the first hand account of what it was like to travel on a slave ship. Theeeeeeeeen… Create a companion journal entry from the perspective of a slave trader. o What were the motivations for a person who would do this? o How would s/he react to slavery? o How would this person react to the suicide of the slaves? o What values does this person have?

17 The Triangle: ________________________________________________________ Make your own triangle of trade! Remember, what made the Triangle so effective was that it always fed into itself. Work with whoever you like, just be working! Make sure you’re on task, because you’ll be sharing your Triangles with the class in a few minutes!

18 Set sail for adventure! ________________________________________________________ Here’s what I need: Color (All over, please!) Symbols that represent YOU on the sails Your name on the bow (for example, S.S. Michael Cooper)

19 We’re done! ________________________________________________________ Thank you for all your hard work today! Make sure to put your notebooks in the crate and your folders in folders, please!
