To better connect with the concept of Interdependence within our economy, Second Grade students went on a trip the Washington Square! While there, they made and recorded their choices as consumers and future producers & advertisers. Some graphed how stores displayed their products, some conducted quick interviews with other consumers, and many were overheard making connections from their learning in the classroom to what they observed in the stores. This experience was a great way to bring the interconnectedness of our economy to life!
In the upcoming weeks, students will discuss and present findings from their field trip, make choices as producers and discover ways to advertise their products/services to prepare for the Second Grade Market!
Central Idea: Choices & events impact the economic system.
Students are inquiring into: The structure of the economic system (Function) and the interdependence within the economic system (Causation).
