Apples with ginger, clove and nutmeg

Regular group tackling the history of cartography through reading, playing, drawing, arting, crafting, tripping, cooking.

Exploring the spice trade through the activity of Bring Me Your Spice. We set the kids off to choose a spice, navigate a sea and land route from source island to England, pay taxes and duties through harbours and borders, then once on home land, cook their chosen spice with English apples to sell it at the marketplace. Price must cover costs en route and return a profit to fund the next voyage. (One portion can be yours for two hundred pounds.)

A bunch of home educated kids, Ellen McHenry and Giles Milton. We all make a great team.
