Earlier this month, the 5th graders at my school spent the day at J.A. Biz Town. It’s like a mini city inside of one building.
All of the students had a job at one of the businesses. There are over 20 companies inside. We even got a bank account with a working debit card. We learned how to deposit paychecks and keep track of our money.
My favorite part was my lunch break. You get to eat in a Chik-fil-A cafeteria with your friends and use your money to buy things from different stores. It was a really fun field trip!
