Third Graders Selling Homemade goodsThe third grade classrooms finished up an economics unit with a sale of homemade goods. During the lesson the students learned that people are both buyers and sellers of goods and services. Part of the lesson included learning to spend money to meet their needs versus wants. They learned the importance of choosing to spend money on goods and services now, or how to save that money. The opportunity to create innovative products to sell and to make smart purchases prepares them to be Ready for Tomorrow.
