5th grade students from Woodland learned about the important elements of community and economy, work readiness, financial literacy, and business management. As part of this unit, students spent the day at the Junior Achievement BizTown site on October 28th.This on-site visit provided students with an opportunity to apply what they learned in a realistic setting. Each student had a job, produced and/or sold products and services, received a paycheck, worked on a business team in order to pay off a business loan, shopped and managed a personal bank account. Throughout the program, students used critical thinking skills to learn about key economic concepts.
