23rd March 17
Our 3rd and 4th Primary students have enjoyed a lot running their own business. They formed groups and brought small objects from their houses to “sell” them to their partners. They created their own windows and took turns to be shop assistants, cashiers and buyers.
They could use the concepts they were working in class, with coins and notes, which made the game more real and amusing, besides this let them practise their calculus strategies, payments and refunds.
They had a very good time and felt very proud of their purchases and sales. Some of them went out looking like tourists.
