For the Imperialism project, we had a blank world map, and we had to color in the map with different colors. We drew shipping routes. For example one shipping route was from Spain to the Carribeans. We had to use color pencils to show what nation/country controlled what. For example Englands colony was supposed to be colored in red. What I think was the point of this project was to show what imperialism was and what it did. I believe it lasted from the 1500's to about the 1850's.
