Columbian Exchange Homework

Find at least three online graphic organizers showing the Columbian Exchange (I found this image by googling "Columbian Exchange." Print out those pages and then write a one page review of what you found. Your review should include:

Which of the charts would be the best to distribute in an AP class? Why? Please defend your choice and note the strengths and weaknesses of each chart. Assess readability, how informative they are, how easily understood, and their general attractiveness. If you were Tueting, which one would you post?

When you have completed your task, post a link to the BEST organizer you found in the comments section (you can copy and paste the url into your comment).

DO NOT read the comments until you have done your own research; you don't want to be swayed by someone else's analysis.

    This isn't very attractive, but is organized and provides a lot of information.

    I liked this chart because it was easy to follow. It also gave a good amount of information that is understandable. It's not very pretty but that's okay.

    It's ugly, but not to the extreme, and it gives the most representative view of the Columbian Exchange was.

    Very simple but easy to read. The best one is probably the one used as an example.

    Easy to read. Informative.
    The best example is definitely the one Tueting used.

    This was the only diagram with vivid details that i could find. Mr. Teuting stole the best one for his blog so we cant use it.

    Shows the paths travelers took and the stuff they traded. It's very colorful which is always attractive.

    I think I like this one even better than Mr. Tueting's example.

  42. Actually, the image that i found the most helpfull was the one you selected.

    http://mrthompson.org/text/2-3%20The%20Impact%20of%20Colonization_files/image019.jpg

    It show the path of exchange, lists the items exchanged, and indicated where they originated and where they are going. The chart also serves as a map of the two continents involved. Other Columbian Exchange charts didn't have both of those qualties.

  44. In browsing 20 pages of Google, yours is BY FAR the best one. Assuming we can't use that one, I found this one pretty helpful:

    It's very easy to read, colorful, and informative. Everything an effective graphic organizer needs to have.

  46. This Graphic was easy to understand, because it puts things into subgroups. Though it is not the prettiest thing to look at.
