Product Description
Merchants and Traders

My students' favorite activity of the year. A triangle trade simulation game for students. Can be used by students of any age and used by a teacher to introduce the economic principles of supply, demand, scarcity, and trade within the historical context of the triangle trade.

You will spend between $10-$25 for the physical toys needed to play the game (although you could print pictures for free). Most items are available at the dollar store.
