Class # 5   Grades: 2- 3

Class Overview

How many times have you been asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”  In our class you will have the opportunity to become an expert on a career that you choose.  You will design and build a visual of your job and create your own personal career portfolio.  You will receive a mock paycheck and learn to maintain your own checkbook. You will also have the opportunity to work with a small team of your classmates as entrepreneurs and come up with a product that could be sold at the Minnesota State Fair.  Your team will design a model of a display booth, make a prototype of your product, and come up with a plan to persuade customers to purchase your product.  One of the many highlights of our class is running the two Summer Academy concession stands and seeing first-hand how a real business works.  You will take your turn to work in the concession stand making sales to Summer Academy students and staff.  Join us as we explore “real world” experiences.
