Post Classical Trade Activity

While completing this activity, you will also need to complete a set of quizzes in Schoology about Trade in the Post-Classical Age. The quizzes will be due next Wednesday, by 11:59 pm. If you do everything below, this should be rather easy. But don't wait until the last minute. There are 9 quizzes altogether!

For this activity, you are going to need to research the major trade routes of the Post-Classical Age.  Below, for each of the regions, you will find links to help you put together a picture of the routes. Also, use Chapter 8 in your text. Click here for a copy of the activity.

A great overview of AP Trade Routes in the Post-Classical Age can be found here: AP Worldipedia
