What Is The Columbian Exchange???

  • The Columbian Exchange was a simple trade between the New World and the Old World.It was opened by the early explorer Christopher Columbus in the year 1493.

What was positive about the Columbian Exchange????

  • One good thing about the Columbian Exchange was the plants that were exchanged.These plants were wheat,coffee,bananas,sugar,corn,peanuts,potatoes,tomatoes,and cocoa.These are just some of the plants that were exchanged during the Columbian Exchange not all of them because there are way more.
  • Another good thing about the Columbian Exchange is the animals that were exchanged.Some examples of the animals that were exchanged are horses,chickens,cows,and sheep.These are positives because without some of these animals we would't have food.For example without chicken we wouldn't have fried chicken or baked chicken or just chicken in general.
  • And one last positive about the Columbian Exchange is when the potato thing happened this was also a negative but there is a positive side to it.The positive side is when the Irish people found out and moved to another country and lived a good rest of their lives.

What was negative about the Columbian Exchange????

  • One negative thing about the Columbian Exchange is the diseases that were exchanged.Some examples are measles and smallpox.These are considered negatives because these diseases killed people and killing is an obvious negative.
  • Another negative about the Columbian Exchange is the potato that started growing fungus.This is considered a negative because it killed most of the Irish,and once again killing is an obvious negative.
  • And one last negative about the Columbian Exchange is the slaves that the Europeans picked up and brought to the Americas.This is negative because as we all know slavery is bad because most all slaves are mistreated so once again this is an obvious negative.

Vote for the Columbian Exchange because....

  • Vote for the Columbian Exchange because they give you food that you wouldn't have without the Columbian Exchange and you need food to survive and if you don't have it you could die and that's not good.
