World Market showcases the Silk Road

As a traditional history project at FC, the seventh graders hosted the 6th annual World Market. In previous years, the event was held in the Ground Zero courtyard. However, due to rain, the festivity was held inside the Peoples Church gym, April 12.

Throughout the year, the world history students learn about trading routes and the Silk Road. In order to put their studies into action, groups of students were assigned to countries such as Japan, India, Jerusalem, Arabia and Egypt. After months of hard work, their job was to sell hand made products that represented their country to the elementary, junior high and high school students.

Seventh grade English and history teacher, Natalie Douty, taught and oversaw the big project, along with the help of former seventh grade history teacher, Ellen King.

The seventh graders arrived early to school in order to set up their booths and prepare for all of the students and parents who attended. Each student dressed up in a costume that reflected their country and spent the day trying to sell all their items. A money exchange booth was placed at the entrance of the door, where students could purchase tickets to pay for the World Market products.

At the end of the day, each country put all of their tickets into one plastic bag and turned them into history teacher, Hallie Rojeski, who counts the tickets with the California Junior Scholarship Federation (CJSF) club. Based on the revenue of tickets, each group received their profits back in cash, in which they split the money.
