teach Junior Achievement this year for Annelise's class, I wasn't sure what I was getting into! Turns out, I teach five different sessions of JA Our City. I did the first last week and the second this Thursday.
In our first session, I taught them about the different zones in a city (multipurpose, residential, agricultural, business, & industrial) and then we became city planners: each student created a different pop-up building (homes, bakery, movie theatre, city hall, library, apartment complex, post office, airport, factory, barn, etc.) and we organized each into its proper zone on our city floor map.
Sweet & crazy class:
This week, I taught my session (the importance of money to a city, paying taxes, and how people use different methods to pay for goods and services) while their regular teacher attended the annual Teacher Appreciation breakfast...and she had left me *my* fave Sbux order on her desk to enjoy that morning! ♥ The sweetest surprise EVER!!! #Sbuxmylovelanguage
I'll do the next three sessions in January after Christmas break. :-)
