Activity Overview


Understanding the struggles of modern Africa requires an in-depth knowledge of the era known as the Scramble for Africa. The impact that Europeans had on the development of African regions they colonized was far-reaching and extremely damaging. In this activity, students will create a timeline that explains how European nations came to dominate Africa by 1914.

The timeline should address issues and subjects like:

  • David Livingstone
  • The Belgian Congo
  • European advantages
  • African resistance movements, especially in Ethiopia
  • The Berlin Conference

Extension

Students can create an additional timeline that describes the independence movements in Africa in the 1950s and 1960s. A specific focus on the Congo and Patrice Lumumba would provide a good bookend to the story of Imperialism in Africa. This will allow students to have a greater understanding of the effects of imperialism and the actions taken to overcome the damages.
