The Third Grade Classroom Economy course kicked off the school year with its first Market Day
The Third Grade Classroom Economy course kicked off the school year with its first Market Day on Sept. 26. Students showcased their budding entrepreneurial skills by producing and "selling" their products in their classroom market. At the end of the day, an economic report was generated by a class "economist," who shared information about product supply and demand, price ranges and percentage of buyers and sellers at Market Day.
Third Grade Classroom Economy is designed to mimic real-world economics as students apply for jobs, earn salaries, produce goods and pay taxes.
