Room 10 News
Within the next few weeks our class will be beginning Kid Town! We will be creating a town centered around businesses and stores within our classroom. In our town, the students will “earn” play money by producing items and selling services. They will act as consumers by “spending” their play money at various stores.
Through this simulation the children will learn many social studies concepts related to communities and economies. Throughout the unit, students will learn the importance of democracy, being a responsible citizen, as well as what it means to be a productive member of a community. Students will also explore basic economic concepts and their role in a free-market economy.
In order to operate our town, we will need some donated items:
· empty, clean, food boxes and containers (no glass or metal please)
· junk mail envelopes or plain white envelopes
· toilet paper tubes
· beads and string for necklaces and bracelets
*Please do not feel like you need to donate something from every category or spend money. The goal should be to reuse and repurpose most materials.
We will also celebrate the end of our unit with a Town Meeting. Stay tuned for more information on Kid Town!
