Product Description
In this hands on activity, students simulate bartering. They take on the roles of farmers, blacksmiths, ranchers etc., and trade their goods and services for other goods and services. As the students struggle to assign value to their goods and services they realize the value of currency. The whole activity leads into a great discussion on the functions and characteristics of money. My students have done this simulation for years and have always loved it!
