        Natural Resources of West Africa

        Students will explore a physical map of West Africa that includes the location of natural resources, main transportation routes, and most populous cities. Then the students will complete a chart to help them take notes on the features of the map. Finally the students will apply what they have learned from the map to come to some conclusions about what these features suggest about the legacy of colonialism in West Africa. To launch the activity, click the "Map-Based Exploration" image.
