A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Mill

Students participate in a simulation of wool trading in the 1800's. They pass around a ball of yarn at various stations to simulate the interdependence of each stage of the wool trade, discuss what happens when there is a problem in the process, and write a narrative titled, "A Day in the Life of a Piece of Wool."
