Biztown 2018

Last week, fourth grade students took a field trip to BizTown, a kid-sized city simulation where students become working adults for the day. Pictured above, LILA student Connor Fraley, aka the Engineer, opens his BizTown savings account with Savings Officer Kennedy Lasch. This excursion is a great way to practice the IB Action Cycle - Choose, Act, and Reflect. Each student had a job, worked with their business team, and chose where to spend their hard earned money!
