End of 3rd 9 weeks tomorrow!!

Market Day

To conclude our Economics unit we will be having our annual second grade Market Day. We have decided to continue with tradition and sell popcorn. We will be bagging our popcorn in our "factory" (classroom) and selling to third, fourth, and kindergarten students during their recess time. We are very excited and can't wait to put all the knowledge we now have about economics into a real life situation. We plan to use the money to help buy items for the 4th 9 weeks projects and events. We will also be using some of our income to purchase snacks and drinks for our zoo field trip that is coming in april.

We will need the following items for our Market Day celebration.

1. Ziplock sandwich baggies.

2. M & M's

3. Gloves to keep our product nice and clean :)

If you can send in any of the items we would greatly appreciate it!
