YEAR 5/6 MINI MARKET
The Mini Market is a great way of giving a real life experience to what the students need to learn as part of the Humanities – Economics curriculum. Throughout the course of the term, the students have studied needs and wants, demand and supply, workforce arrangements and the impact of advertising. Putting these skills into action, the students have worked in groups to design and create products, learn about budgeting and expenditure, generate purchase orders and target their market buyers through advertising, culminating in the selling of their products at the Stawell West Mini Market in June.
Putting curriculum into action in this way allows students to display their creativity, enhance their skills in working as a team and put into real life the economic concepts learnt as part of the Humanities program.
