4th-grade Economics Means Marketplace Fun at King’s

King’s fourth grade students are getting a taste of what it’s like to own a small business at this year’s Marketplace. Each student decided on a product to make, estimating how many they thought they could sell (usually between 50 and 150). They then determined a price based on item cost and how well their peers thought the product would sell.

This year’s booths include Italian sodas, sushi candy, fuzzy friends, marshmallow roasting sticks made from recycled golf clubs, sports team swag, delicious baked goods, key chains, Christmas decorations, toys and games, mystery boxes, kettle and caramel corn, Seahawks sugar, slime, jewelry and more. Customers shop with “Marketplace Dollars” ($.25 each) and all proceeds will be donated to charity.

Students of all ages found treasures last week. This Friday, December 9th, will be everyone’s last chance to find their special Marketplace gem. (PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO FRIDAY’S SNOW DAY, OUR FINAL DAY OF MARKETPLACE WILL BE MONDAY, DECEMBER 12.)
