Bartering Day

One of our Tennesse SPIs is to distinguish between a
barter economy and money economy.  Well, what better
way to learn than by doing it.  So we held a bartering day
from my class and Mrs. Simpson's class.  They could bring
a small item from home to barter.

We had everything:  matchbox cars, necklaces.
headbands, gum, notepads, pencils, beef jerky,
cokes, drawings, and even those funny clown glasses.

Mission Accomplished!  We know bartering!
