These previous items are included in the Worksheet Bargain Hunters (PDF above) but I separated them to make photocopying easier.
  •  Cards ( 3 cards) with pictures of items students can sell. Peter Vahle  proposes to bring  real  stuff to class so that students can sell real items (see teacher's notes) . To avoid the hassle I have created  3  pages/cards with pictures of various items. Feel free to use them as you wish.  (3 Word documents: Items to sell)
  • Sample items to sell at the flea market.

  • List of items included in the  3 cards above above.(Word document: list of items to sell). See  for  example of the items to sell in card 2 .
