Fifth grade students at Hoffman Trails participated in BizTown and had the opportunity to apply basic economic concepts in a real world setting. For weeks leading up to the out of classroom experience, students developed business plans, discussed the importance of citizen rights and selected a job. While at BizTown, students took on various roles such as a citizen, business owner, employee or consumer during the BizTown simulation.
BizTown is a program many of our elementary schools participate in as well. We know these authentic learning experiences will help each student be Ready for Tomorrow.
