Dear Grade 3 Parents,
The Grade 3 Team is looking for volunteers! We are planning a very exciting opening learning engagement for our next unit of inquiry, How We Organize Ourselves. The central idea of this unit is: Economic activity relies on a system of exchange and consumption of goods and services.
We are looking for some volunteers who would be able to come in and help us with a special event on the afternoon of Tuesday, January 28 from about 2:00 until 3:30 or so (including set-up and clean-up.) We will be building our own Sundaes at the Sundae Shop in the south cafeteria where students will be able to spend earned “money” on various add-ins for their sundae (whipped cream, sprinkles, etc…) to see the concepts of supply and demand in action! Our volunteers would need to be brave and ready to help our third-graders build their own sundae in an environment that is bound to be noisy and chaotic – probably a bit messy, too!
Please contact your homeroom teacher to let them know if you would be able to help us with this fun and educational event!
The Grade 3 Team
