SKU: H34IL80703

Discover how the ruthless East India Company gained control of trade in Southeast Asia, as well as how many people living in the countries corrupted by the Company resisted British rule. It might seem strange to your class that there was so much fierce competition over spices and some other commodities which are abundant today, but the included slides challenge children to consider how they came to be so important for traders and for people living in Britain. As with all the lessons in this Complete Series, there's a choice of differentiated activities, including a board game where children will find out more about how the East India Company sought to control trade.
