Directions: Trade Project
You are a Middle Ages Arabian trader. You will have some type of product that you will be trading. Once you know your item for trade you will make an accounting chart to keep track of your trade business. There will be several steps to the trade project.
Step 1: Find other traders to trade goods with. You may trade goods you have for their goods, or you can buy outright with money their goods after agreeing upon a price. Account for all of your trades on the accounting sheet on page 18.
Step 2: Pick the items that you will sell at the market. Once you have picked these items, they are sold and must be taken out of your inventory of items on page 18.
Step 3: You will find out the market conditions and market price of your goods, and then account for the money that you have made from selling those goods on the market. Account for this as well on page 18.
Step 4: After repeating steps 1-3 a few times we will see who the best trader is. You will also answer the questions below on this page.
