🦈 Shark Tank: Will You Be an Entrepreneur or a "Wantrepreneur"?
Rachel Silverberg, 4th Grade Teacher
Students in 4th grade began their long-awaited Shark Tank/Financial Literacy unit!  Following a lot of build-up and anticipation throughout the year, students are eager to begin innovating new products to pitch to the Sharks.
Prior to this exciting classroom event, students must learn the many perks, deductions, and caveats to earning, borrowing and spending money. They begin with picture books focused on saving money, working towards savings goals and an introduction to taxes. Students learn about income, manufacturing costs, potential profit and paying back debts with interest.
Once the foundation is laid, fourth graders look forward to learning who the Sharks will be and sharing their detailed financial plan with them in hopes they will "invest" in their products! So be sure to ask your kids...will you be an entrepreneur or a "want"-repreneur?!
