Everett Elementary’s Entrepreneur Fair

Second graders at Everett Elementary recently took part in their annual entrepreneur fair. On April 5, 2024, the school’s hallways buzzed with excitement as young minds turned paper into profit. As part of their unit on goods and services, they tasked students with inventing and marketing a unique product crafted entirely from paper. From origami bookmarks to paper airplanes, the array of offerings showcased the boundless imagination of these budding entrepreneurs.

Each student transformed poster boards into makeshift storefronts, constructing colorful displays. With enthusiasm brimming, they eagerly awaited the arrival of their peers, armed with play money to indulge in the shopping experience.

Throughout the morning session, visitors from other classes flooded the fair. Laughter and chatter filled the air as transactions unfolded, with students on both sides of the exchange learning valuable lessons about commerce and consumerism.

However, the excitement didn’t end there. Following a well-deserved lunch break, the roles reversed, and former buyers stepped into the shoes of store owners. With newfound entrepreneurial zeal, they eagerly awaited their turn to entice customers with their innovative paper products.

The fair provided a hands-on learning experience and fostered essential skills such as teamwork, creativity, and financial literacy. As students navigated the intricacies of supply and demand, they better understood the economic concepts underpinning our society.

With hearts and minds enriched by the experience, the second graders of Everett Elementary left a lasting impression on all who attended, proving that age is no barrier to unleashing creativity and entrepreneurial spirit.
