$$   Market Day   $$
Katina Sharp's fifth grade class has been studying a unit on Economics in social studies that is included in Georgia's common core standards. To conclude the unit, students set up a market and provided goods or services to their peers. The students created a business and decided the cost for the service or goods they provided. The students earned "market bucks" for good behavior during the first nine-weeks grading period and got to spend these at the market. Included in this lesson was a section on paying bills. Students were required to pay their teacher rent, utilities, and taxes for their desk and items used within the classroom. At the end of the day the students calculated their profit and decided if their business was profitable or not.
