It Must Be the Money!

We dove into our second unit of study for social studies, called,

It Must Be The Money! The students have been learning about the history of money, managing money, budgeting money, saving money and so on. We traveled to T and T Promotions to learn about running a business. We learned about supply and demand, competition, product production, profits and so much more. Then, we headed to Stuckey's Farm and watched how to grow some vegetables. We learned how important honey bees are to a successful garden.
