See the exclamation point in the thought bubble? This picture is to remind you to think about what was interesting. Did this presentation make you curious? Did you learn something new?
The market took place in the center of town, and was a place where people could buy what they needed and sell what they made or grew. Peasants who lived in town went to the market. Lords and ladies didn’t need to shop because they had servants to do the work for them!
How did people pay for what they needed? Sometimes they used coins, other times they traded something they had for something that they needed. Turn and Talk: What would you trade if you didn’t have any money at the store?
People often bought food at the market. What food do you see here that your family buys at the grocery store?
Drapers’ stallGoldsmiths stallBread stallSaddlers stall Here are some other things you might find at the market:
What do you think people would have used pots for? Who might buy bread from these girls? Think to yourself...
Imagine you are training to be a knight and need a new sword but don’t have enough money to buy it. What could you offer to trade to the seller?
Visualize… We’re in the market in the center of town. What do we see around us? Turn and tell a friend something that you see. What do we hear? What are people saying to each other? I see…(teacher repeats some of the things she hears children say to each other and models the kinds of things she wants them to imagine)…many stalls, some selling pots, bread, animals, clothing, and horse saddles. I hear people asking each other how much things cost, I hear the noises of chickens from the chicken stall... Let’s pretend that we are servants who have been sent out by the knight to get horseshoes. We need 40 horseshoes so that all 10 of the horses have new shoes for the tournament coming up. We need to find the metalsmith’s stall. Here it is! What might we say to the metalsmith? (Children share ideas) Let’s all say, “Good morning. I’d like 40 horseshoes, please.” Now let’s pretend that we are bakers at the market. What could we be selling? (Children share suggestions – choose one.) Let’s make our bread dough – scoop in some flour…scoop, scoop, scoop. Now let’s pour in the water…woooosh. Mix it up! Show me what it looks like to mix VERY stiff dough. Is it easy or hard to move the spoon through the dough? Now let’s dump the dough out to shape our loaf…pat, pat, pat. And into the oven with a long spatula so that we don’t have to get too close to the heat! Oh, here comes a customer. Who would come to buy from us? She says, “One loaf, please.” Let’s tell her, “Coming right up!” and hand her a loaf. How much does it cost? (Take suggestions.) Now let’s tell her, “That will be 1 dollar.”
