Mali Market Day-March 1, 2017

We really enjoyed studying about the ancient Empire of Mali, which was at its height in the 1350’s. Among other things, it was the center of trade in western Africa. People from all over came to trade goods. Since so many different countries and languages were represented, the traders developed an honor system called “silent bartering”. Our third graders had a great time using silent bartering at our own Mali Market Day!
