5th Graders Run a Towne

Angelina was ready to take on the city. they use debit cards, checks, and cash to purchase items.

Angelina is the manager of the Tv station.

The 5th graders of MA went to Ameritowne today. For weeks they have been learning about fiscal responsibility, budgets, supply and demand, checks, deposit slips...you name it. They applied for jobs, were interviewed, trained, and today was THE big day to put it all into action! What an amazing place to learn about being a citizen of the USA. This place is built on top of a bank in Denver and sponsored by businesses big and small. So fun! Glad I was a part of this experience.
