The Columbian Exchange
VOTE NOW! FOR OR AGAINST?
The Columbian Exchange was when Columbus and his men came to the Americas, Africa, and Asia and they brought with them foods like tomatoes, potatoes, cocoa, bananas, and many other items to these countries. There were positive and negative effects of the Columbian Exchange. Some positive effects were that people got new foods, they got new animals, better transportation back then, (the horses) and the Americas were united to the rest of the world. Some negative effects were that people died from small-pocks, the potato fungus killed many people because of hunger, and people thought that the horse was a man-eating beast. I am definitely FOR the Columbian Exchange!
FOR THE EXCHANGE
I think people should be FOR the exchange because without the exchange we would not have corn, potatoes, tomatoes, cocoa, wheat to make bread, horses and many other things. But many people died because of small-pocks and that is really bad but, I am still for the Columbian Exchange.
