To prepare for BizTown, students in our school's 5th grade classes will learn about the flow of an economy in a community including producers and consumers, businesses, nonprofits, taxes, and philanthropy. Students complete lessons in class to understand the need for goods and services and how those are provided in a community. Students complete job applications and interviews. Subsequently, they are hired for a specific job at BizTown and spend a day working at their job assignment. On the day of BizTown, students go through a day in their career. Students earn a paycheck at BizTown. They learn how to manage their money including opening checking and savings accounts. They learn about taxes, interest, how to balance a checkbook, and how to manage finances at a company. Students see their math skills in action as they add and subtract decimals!
