Second graders put economics into practice during market day

On May 3, second graders in Keri Williams’ class held their first-ever Market Day as the culminating activity for their unit on economics. The students worked in groups to create goods to sell or services to offer. They created supply lists of needs as well as logos and business plans. Leading up to the event, students were able to earn money throughout the week for things such as acts of kindness and being on task. They could also lose money for not following the rules. This activity was valuable hands-on practice in financial literacy as well as fun for all!
