After learning about economic vocabulary and creating a Michigan products' board on Discovery Education, students were invited to buy a business license using third grade classroom mini money and work with other entrepreneurs to create a product or service to market to their classmates. 

Students participate daily in a classroom mini-society but adding a culminating project to the economy unit that allowed students to direct their own learning has proved very beneficial.

"Our company, Legit Fidget, made $287 profit by selling the fidgets we made, " stated third grader Drew Wegner.  

"My incentive to buy one stress ball and get one free made a good profit, " added Olivia Greene. 

"Using a raffle as an incentive helped me sell more of my Cutie Cuff bracelets," said Katelyn Dibb.

Flickinger third graders are truly invested in learning.
