"On Thursday we had a Swap Shop and we swapped things. We exchanged things like used toys. We had a system for the Swap Shop like everyone had to bring something if you wanted to swap and that if something had a battery you needed extra information about it." - Ada
"When we exchanged money for things it was fun. When I was the cashier I needed to count the money, how much cents it is." - Ayumi
"In the bartering survival game we had to give away something we didn't need. We tried to exchange wheat but no one wanted wheat but finally we exchanged the wheat for water. It was like when you grow up, it was real." - Allegra
"We have got new laptops. They are called Chromebooks. We used to just use them and take them out and put them in but now we've got a new system for putting in and out the Chromebooks. So the first person that goes to put in the Chromebooks will put in the Chromebooks in but the people behind the person who is putting in the Chromebooks will do three steps back or more. And that system goes if we are putting in and out the Chromebooks. We should hold them in a special way. The way that we have to do it is on the Chromebooks there is a little handle, you should pull the handle up and a bit of a rough handbag handle will pop up or you will hold the Chromebook just under your armpit and have it secure with your arm and your hand on the corner." - Ronen
