LET'S PLAY - EMIGRANT SCORE SHEET

READ YOUR ROLE CARD. You make the MOST points by agreeing to an indenture contract working the fewest years possible. Agreeing to a contract earns you points and bonus points. Your role card tells you how many points and bonus points you will earn based on the years of your contract. Add the points and bonus points for your total points. The more points, the better for you.

There are 4 worker classifications numbers (4-the most skilled to 1-the least skilled). You must tell the agent your worker classification number. [Teachers: emigrants can embellish their number by one if you think it will provide more realism to the activity.]

Your role card tells you the greatest number of years you are willing to work. Remember: agree to the fewest years possible in order to earn the most points possible! Talk with as many agents as you like to get the best contract, but you can only agree to ONE contract.

When you agree on a deal (an indenture contract):
º Shake hands and tell the teacher the agreed upon length of contract.
º Record the length of the contract and your points on your Emigrant Score Sheet (below). (Use this score sheet for all the rounds of the game). Wait until the next round to begin trading again.
º The Emigrant with the most points at the end of the game wins!
