Forest Creek 3rd graders opened for business on Friday 1/22 for their first ever Economics Fair. This PBL (Project Based Learning) unit taught students basic economic and financial literacy vocabulary. The learning was hands on as students developed a simple product or service to sell to another class. As producers kids developed a business plan, kept track of expenses to determine their profit and wrote advertisements that were previewed by the consumers. Reflection conversations focused on consumer preferences, store displays, and competition. All in all it was a fun unit with its roots in learning. Click here for more photos.
