Sixth graders learn to barter for goods

Sixth graders learned how to barter this morning as part of their social studies and history unit. Each student was given an item to barter—a tool, a farming animal, a food-producing animal, etc—so he or she could obtain an item needed for the household. What followed was a lively exchange among the participants and an appreciation for strong bartering skills!
