Life Lessons Through Business
Our 5th grade students enjoyed a unique opportunity to create and manage their own stores. First, they produced a business proposal that included products, prices, and marketing strategies. On December 17, the students opened their stores and welcomed K-4th grade students as their customers. Using “Because Bucks,” the younger students shopped the variety of items offered at the stores. Through this experience, the 5th grade students learned about supply and demand, the importance of good customer service, and money management. Our shoppers also learned about money and time management, as they were all given the same amount of “Because Bucks” and had a limited time to shop. It was exciting to see the many creative ideas the students had for their stores and to watch them interact with customers. We are proud of our entrepreneurs!
