The American Enterprise Project team of Kearah Kraus, Alyssa Kreg, and Christina Masnyy from Fife High School spent three days working with first, third, and fifth graders at Discovery and Hedden. 

They held an activity day with each grade designed to teach students about financial literacy. Students were given $20 in fake currency to spend on purchasing items. They could chose from small cookies, large cookies, a variety of sprinkles, frostings, and candy. The pricing of the items was adjusted based on demand, as well as to meet the common core standards for each grade level. Students were encouraged and rewarded if they saved their money. 

Each grade level came away knowing about a budget, how to stick to it, and how it can benefit them in the future!
