A mini-nation

Third grade students at Peachtree City Elementary School celebrated the culmination of their Mini Society unit with a Market Day. Classrooms worked together to build their own mini-nations, complete with individual currencies, economies, and job positions. Students then worked with partners to design a product, produce it, and market it to their peers.
