Our Kindergarteners visited their Big Buddies for their Simutown project. Simutown is a classroom program that simulates business, banking, and civic activities. The third graders start and run a business to sell his/her own handmade products and become involved in local government.
Kindergarteners were given“SimuBucks,” the town currency to buy products from the Big Buddies. A variety of items were sold such as drawings, plants, bead jewelry, hand drawn trading cards, self-created comic books, bookmarks, handmade wallets, flower pens, pet rocks, crafts made from recycled products, decorated pencil cups, and many, many more creative ideas. One year, a student even had a fortune telling booth!
