Today’s Learning: How did Afroeurasia contribute to global trade?

Warm Up: Use the atlas (NDA, p. 122/NWA, p. 63) on your table to help you locate and label the following cities of Africa on your Afroeurasian Trade Map:

  • Tripoli
  • Cairo
  • Timbuktu
  • Mogadishu

Class Work: On the Afroeurasia Trade chart, for “Goods Produced” and “Africa”, write:

  • Gold
  • Ivory
  • Precious Gems
  • Exotic Animals

On the chart, in the box for “Trade Routes” and “Africa”, write:

  • Tripoli to Genoa (sea)
  • Tripoli to Timbuktu (land)
  • Timbuktu to Cairo (land)
  • Mogadishu to Cairo (sea)
  • Cairo to Baghdad (land)
  • Mogadishu to Mumbai (sea)

Then, use a colored pencil to trace those routes on the trade map, using dashed green lines for land routes and solid blue lines for sea routes.
