Grade 7 Social Studies students completed their Economics unit in December with a summative Marketplace project (pictured above). This simulation gave students the chance to apply several of the principles learned throughout the unit. Specifically, students evaluated market forces in order to create a profitable business. Grade 6 students were given “AC bucks” and could then choose which of the Grade 7 items to “purchase,” thereby voting with their “dollars.” It was an excellent example of a real world learning experience!

We are delighted to be back to school and ready to dive into the end of first semester and begin the Middle School second semester at the end of January. I hope you had a wonderful break.

With kind regards,
