Future Crozet Entrepreneurs

Third grade students at Crozet Elementary culminated their economics unit of study by holding their own Market Day. During the unit of study the students created a class currency, held classroom jobs, and received “salaries” with their created currency. Each student operated his or her own store and created products to sell. They engaged in product research, advertising, accounting, payroll, inventory, and price negotiation. All Market Day products were handmade by the students and included: corn husk dolls, ornaments, hair clips, bean bags, cards, stationery, decorated magnets, jewelry, nail painting, key rings, and air-borne toys.
