Mrs. Jones' Class Studies Economics

Students participate in the class trade.

Students in Mrs. Jones' third grade class have been studying economic concepts in social studies.  Recently, the students discussed how people, states and countries can get things they need and want by trading.  Each student brought in an item from home they no longer wanted and participated in a class trade.  Some students traded more than once or came up with interesting "selling" points for their item to get what they really wanted.  The activity definitely made the concept of trade come to life!
