Mini-society: STARVILLE!!

Our 3rd graders have been very busy gearing up for STARVILLE, which is the mini-society that happens only once a year! To prepare for this economics study, students learned about scarcity, production, goods/services, and currency. They had to complete "factory work" a few times a week to create goods that would be sold at a store. Students also filled applications online and had to explain why he/she would be good at that particular job. Finally, on Friday, the big day was here! The pictures explain a lot, but we had 20 stores at our STARVILLE, where students worked at two different places and were given the opportunity to shop as well-just in time for the Christmas !
