Columbian Exchange

The Columbian Exchange is an exchange between the continents of America and Europe.This exchange included crops,animal,diseases,and other foods.


One positive effect of the Columbian Exchange is that the Europeans brought us horses.This is positive because they helped the native hunt and kill buffalo faster.Another positive effect of the Columbian Exchange is that we now have new people in this world.Europe,Africa,and Asia exchanged people to us which.This is positive because that raised the number of our population.Another positive effect of the Columbian Exchange is that we are now able to improve our foods.Europe,Africa,and Asia can now have yummy spaghetti since we exchanged tomatoes.We can now have delicious brownies since we exchanged sugar.This is positive because without the trade all of our food would be bland and bitter.


There is also a downside to this exchange.One negative effect of the Columbian Exchange is the potato fungus.When we exchanged potatoes to Europe,Africa,and Asia it started a fungus that killed tons of people.This is negative because it killed hundreds of people.Another negative effect of the exchange is that Europe,Africa,and Asia exchanged diseases to us.This is negative because it killed a lot of people.Another negative effect of the exchange is that Europe brought people from Africa to be slaves in America.This is negative because this is unfair to the African slaves.


I support the Columbian Exchange because it was very helpful to America because it provided us with more food which helps more people live.You should support the Columbian Exchange because it gave us good food and improved ours.
