1 Please do not talk at this time Jan 22-23
HW: Rush for Africa Map Questions Use your handout and your book to answer questions about the map of African Imperialism. Examples: Environment- fields, forests, cities, etc… Food- Roast chicken, salad, cookies, etc…. Jobs- factory worker, farmer, scientist, etc…. Please fill out the European Culture Side of Comparison Chart (European/African Culture) If you are not sure what European Culture is like, think back on what you learned about life in England during the Industrial Revolution. Also, many of the customs and ways of life that we follow come from the European Tradition, so you can use those as well. Feel free to refer to your notes and text book also. Be as complete as possible! Get your bubble graphs and practice outlines. Staple your GOOD outline on top with your worksheet from Friday. Check for your name and turn these in!

2 Simulation! Please count off to find your team members
Get a folder with sticky notes, blank class map, pen, and directions Read your directions carefully and do exactly as they say. EXACTLY or this sim won’t work.

3 Simulation Questions Who ended up with the most “Claimed” objects in the room? Who had the least? What factors affected each groups’ success? What kinds of things did you claim? What items went first? Last? Why did you choose the ones you chose? Did anyone cheat? If so, how?

4 The Rush for Africa This simulation represents the European Rush for Africa. What Happened? Europeans became interested in Africa and discovered they needed raw materials (like cotton) for their factories at the same time they began to seriously compete with each other. Each country wanted to win as much land in Africa as possible to improve their international reputation and private wealth. They made a deal in an international meeting called the Berlin Conference to divide Africa (no Africans were consulted). At this meeting, they took a map of Africa and drew lines all over it. Each country then claimed land.

5 Cutting Up Africa

6 Imperialism in Africa – Territories controlled by Europeans by 1914

7 So what was life like for the people of Africa when the Europeans got there?
Use the different Packets on African Tribes to gather information for the second side of your chart. Fill in information on the culture of different African Tribes.

8 Now compare these two cultures…
How are they similar- Write these things into the middle space of your chart. How are they different?- What is the most different about their lives? Put our best ideas up on the board!

9 Please do not talk at this time Jan 23
HW: Finish your Introduction to Imperialism Assignment Video on Evolution Copy the following chart on pg. 56A in your notebook to take notes on Evolution while we watch the video! Title: Evolution and Social Darwinism Define Give Examples Evolution: Survival of the Fittest: Natural Selection: Also: Turn in your map question Answers!

10 Darwin and Social Darwinism
Social Darwinism is the application of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution to Human Societies. Essentially it says that those societies that are the most successful are the ones that come from humans with superior genetic stock. In the 1800’s, Europeans felt this meant that they were the most successful (To them that meant having the best technology, the most scientific learning and the ability to conquer others) because they were more advanced humans. They also thought that people with less technology, scientific learning and so on were naturally going to die out eventually, like the dinosaurs and Neanderthals because they were genetically unfit to survive. To the Europeans who considered Social Darwinism scientific fact, they, personally, were examples of Darwin’s idea of Survival of the Fittest.
