What to you get when you take 21 seven and eight years old producing goods for an Economics fair? Ben's choices using his classroom money: bookmarks, a blue boat made of Popsicle sticks, a fan, multiple rainbow loom bracelets, homemade crayons, a key chain, several pictures including a classmate that was selling them BOGO! I love a seven year old entrepreneur!
The paper plate on the left is a "bad dream catcher." Ben went into intricate detail about how it works and how we needed to hang it by a string over his bed. I also loved the white triangle in the top left corner that was a "claw." Nothing says 2nd grader than someone peddling claws for sale. Ben was especially proud that he sold out early with some kids buying 2 of his LED throwies at a time. He told the slogan he created and was saying as people came by his desk to draw them in. He asked if we could use up the leftovers to make a few more to give to his friends in other classes. Thanks 2nd grade teacher team for sparking some creativity and some pint sized Mad Men.
