What a week of fun activity we have had at ISLA! One of the more dynamic, transdisciplinary and highly student driven units of inquiry that we have at ISLA is our 4th grade unit called, "Show me the money". After inquiring into many concepts related to economy the students took the reins and embarked on the process of starting a business of their choosing. This year they decided on creating a carnival which consisted of a variety of interactive games, treats of all kinds and crafts including making a mother's day card. It was a fun festive event that was a huge success! After paying back the loans from their investors the students are tallying up their earnings which will be divided into spending, saving and giving to a charity of their choice. Way to go 4th grade entrepreneurs!!
