Merchants and Traders
Authored by Danielle Pleasant

This lesson introduces the concepts of supply and demand as well as uses key terms from sixth-grade social studies. The lesson explores bartering from several different periods including Mesopotamian, Greek and Roman times. This reinforces the importance of commodities and currency used in ancient world history.
