Event details

Step back in time to Illinois during the 1750s. Students will practice the barter system used by the French and Native Americans to exchange goods. By participating in a trade, students will learn and see the benefits of this economic process. This is an opportunity for homeschooled or remote learning students to experience Isle a la Cache’s field trip programs that are normally only offered to school groups.
