Beads for Barter....Second Grade

I've written about this lesson before.  Beads for Barter   While my second graders are studying Mali and bartering, they make paper beads that they later use for barter.  They did their trading today.  You can hear music from Mali in the background, btw.

After they barter for beads, they string them.  Some kids save them for Mother's Day and other just enjoy wearing them.   They LOOOOOOOOOVE this lesson.

Sorry. Bartering was autocorrected to altering in my comment above!
