1st Grade Entrepreneurs

Our first grade Ursuline girls have begun focusing on their next social studies cross-curricular project, which will center around the economic concepts of wants/needs and goods/services. The concepts were introduced by having a discussion about what types of things they need in their very own classroom. After coming up with a list of items, they then brainstormed ways they could make the money to buy them. The girls settled on selling SLIME! This project has brought up so many conversations with the students about business and how to sell a quality product. They even had a visit from two high school entrepreneurship students and received some great advice on how to market their brand. Be on the lookout for these tiny businesswomen - the Slime Girls - selling slime in Coke Lobby on Thursday, February 20th at 9:00 a.m.!
