5th graders Prepare For Biz Town
On February 18 and 19, Eason fifth graders will be going to BizTown in Des Moines! This daylong simulation is a culminating event after eight weeks of preparation at Eason. The fifth graders have spent time in social studies learning about goods and services, economics, and many different occupations. Each student was assigned a job in a business and, while at BizTown, students will work together to acquire a business loan and work at their “occupation” during the day to pay it off. Students will have the opportunity to shop for goods and services on their breaks from work. This is good practice for the fifth graders and gives them a little insight into the grown-up world.
