The Super Slime business successfully made the most money at the second grade marketplace, followed by Perfect Paper Products then jewelry and sports.

As a part of project-based learning curriculum, Timber Trail Elementary (TTE) teachers Lisa Hess’ and Wenda Wilson’s second grade students became entrepreneurs for a day, incorporating economic terms and ideas into a marketplace of student-run businesses developed and produced collaboratively with their business group.

Fellow first graders learned financial literacy through earning money to spend at the marketplace while second graders gained experience in business planning, justifying business success, product production and sales.
