I guess I'll take it... What do you want in exchange?
Would you like this fine otter-skin?
What did mom tell me to get in exchange...?
Would you like to buy my wheat or my barley? You could use it to make some bread or some beer. By the way, would you mind giving me a little cup of beer? I see you have some.
Oh, I'd love to buy some of your products! We are running out at our company, and yes, you can have some beer.
Do you like working here?
WORK, WORK, AND WORK!
In the New England colonies, most people earned a living by trading, fishing, lumbering, or shipbuilding. An example of the goods they traded was otter skins. Some people went whaling, which is like fishing for whales, while others only lumbered.
Uh... Let me think about it
The Middle colonies were called "bread basket" because of the abundant amount of wheat products they produce. They also had healthy grass, which meant healthy cows, which lead to milk and meat. They also made beer out of the barley they had.
The southern colonies were famous for their plantations and Tobacco. There was rich soil for healthy plants. Some rich farmers bought slaves to work in fields, which only made them richer. Sadly, the slaves were treated like animals, like they weren't people with feelings.
