In March, I had the opportunity to volunteer in my son’s school during their class trip to JA Biztown and couldn’t be happier as it was a great opportunity to engage with the school and support 5th grade. The kids did an amazing job earning and spending money, opening bank accounts, paying off their business loans – everything we do in real life. Can’t wait for a do over when my daughter reaches 5th grade. (JA BizTown combines in-class learning with a day-long visit to a simulated town. This popular learning experience allows elementary school students to operate banks, manage restaurants, write checks, and vote for mayor. Students are able to connect the dots between what they learn in school and the real world)
