Social Studies Unit 2

Students will analyze the concepts of resources, trade, and contact through the causes and effects of the Trans-Saharan gold and salt trade in Africa during the 12th century.

Students will respond to the Essential Questions:

  • How did people long ago get what they needed and wanted?
  • What happens when people make contact?

This seven-week unit culminates in a creative oral dialogue project about trade.
