Third-grade students took part in the annual Economics Fair at Explorer Elementary. The Economics Fair combines a social studies and service learning project.
During the simulation, students learn how to apply the economic lessons they have learned in social studies classes to produce a good or provide a service. The Economics Fair is widely attended by students, staff, and parents, who can purchase tickets to redeem for student-developed products and services. Money collected from the event is donated to a charity voted on by the entire third-grade class.
