Webster Fifth Grade Students Have A Blast At BizTown

Webster fifth graders had the opportunity to interact in a simulated economy and learn what it takes to run a successful business, manage a debit card and checking account, and work as a team at BizTown. BizTown is a fully interactive, mock town that simulates the day-to-day functions of thriving communities. Students have been taking a financial literacy course as part of their social studies program where they learn how to apply for jobs, write checks, maintain a check register, service an existing customer or recruit new ones, and become a business owner who creates jobs. The program helps students connect what they learned in school with the realities of the business world and everyday life. What a fantastic experience for fifth grade students throughout our district!
