Our fifth graders worked in teams to make , market, and sell products. They had to pick a theme and follow the theme for all of the items on their table. They worked together for a team goal to make the most money, but for a bigger goal to raise money for Children’s Hospital and the Caring Place. The children learned to work together and make compromises for the good of the group. This was a wonderful learning experience for everyone.
