Grade 4 Students Partake in Bartering Day
The annual Bartering Day took place in the Grade 4 wing of Round Hill Elementary School. This activity highlighted lessons learned during units focusing on Native American and Colonial New York. Students created “storefronts” at their desks that consisted of handmade items, toys, baked goods, and more. They were asked to go back to a time when goods and services were exchanged without the use of money and to consider the ideas of needs vs. wants, supply and demand, and the concept of the overall value of an item or service.
