Kindergarten has a Winter Workshop!
As December rolled around kindergarten classes celebrated with a Winter Workshop. This is a fun social studies unit that introduces the students to the world of economics.
Students produced items for 3-4 days and then they took on the role of being consumers where each child spent the "money" that he/she had earned. Prior to the production and buying, classes covered wants and needs, supply and demand and how scarcity influences the economy.
