    Our third graders have an Economics Sale every year. Each student has to make 15-20 of the same product (they have guidelines and a budget). Each student decides on what to produce (some children have made bracelets, picture frames, wooden cars, etc.) and decides on a price (25, 50, or 75 cents). They have to factor in what they spent on materials to predict their profit. Once they have completed all of this, they sell their products in the cafeteria to the other students at school. It is a big fund raiser. Once the sale is over, the whole third grade votes on where the money will be donated. This year we donated over $1,000 to the Austin Children's Hospital and our students were in the paper!
