Overview:

In this novice-mid to novice-high Spanish activity, students will learn and practice the art of bartering for items. Students will participate in a simulated market using fake money to purchase items that are needed to meet a specific list of items. This link provides printouts of items to shop for as well as funny money that can be used in the bartering process. A slide show presentation walks students through the cultural idea of bartering and introduces them to some of the key vocabulary words they will need to complete this simulation.
