In Social Studies we begin our study of economics. Economics is the study of how we make, deliver and use goods and services. In an effort to relate our study of this complex topic to real life, students will apply the concepts learned to a business project. We will be learning many vocabulary words, and the real life application should help students remember the words and their meanings. Each student will be a member of a group and the groups will be responsible for planning, implementing and analyzing a new business which will design and present new products. They will be producing items to be used in our school-wide Field Day. As the students experience what it is like to be "employees"...don't forget to ask your child, "How's business?"
