Junior Achievement

Mike is a volunteer with Junior Achievement and he has been visiting our class every Friday for the past couple of weeks and has been telling us all about the world of business. So far we have learned about Robbie's trip to the farm. We discovered how individuals make choices and we drew pictures of our favourite animals. Mike told us a story about Angie and her plans to earn money by making and selling crafts at a carnival. Another great story was called 'Charlie Plants a Garden'. In this story the characters work together to plant a community garden. We learned about the importance of working together and discovered rewards other than money. Afterwards we got to 'plant' our own garden using assorted plant stickers. It was great fun. We can't wait for Mike to come back next week!!
