Market Day was a lot of fun. Our PYP unit was How We Organize Ourselves, we called it Let's Trade. During Let's Trade we were learning about economies. Our summative assessment was Market Day! All of the 4th grade classes made a product or service of their choice.
Finally, we got all of our products or services set up. Then we got our recording sheet to keep track of how much we sold. A couple minutes later, people from the other classes started coming in to buy things. Some people were not having good business sales so they were lowering their prices. Other people lowered their prices because of compitetion.
We were the last class to shop on Market Day and some businesses had already sold out! Market Day was a lot of fun!
