"... he (the docent) talked about why we (the English) sailed over and about the King getting something in return for sailing us over. He also talked about the Trading Triangle and he had us act it out. He had me be England and he had another girl represent London Town (colonies.) Now she sailed over and traded her tobacco…for my teapot. Then she sailed back. It then became complicated by her sailing over and trading her tobacco for a Bible but this time she sailed over to our my mom (who had taken her mom to represent slaves) to trade, of course leaving my mom with the Bible, taking the slaves back with her. And so that showed us the Trading Triangle." -part of a narration by Katie of a field trip to Londontown, Maryland

This could be done at home, too with either props or pictures to represent the items that were traded in the various places.
