Prior to the end of school, 3rd grade students in Miss Barb Tropf’s and Mrs. Melissa Cardinal’s homerooms did a “Recycled Economics” project. They used recycled materials to create a product to “sell” even creating a logo and slogan to go with it. Students in Mrs. Chris Hiller’s and Mr. Mike Topalian’s classes were given a “salary” for the week, and after paying for their expenses, they used the leftover money to make purchases at the “Recycled Economics” store. Some students were so impressed with the products that they spent all of their money on one item. Actually, only one student, Emily M., left the store with money. Students selling recycled products kept track of their sales and counted their money to determine how much money they had raised at the end of the day. After they paid their expenses, they figured out their net profit. Mercedes B. and Madison F. were the top sellers.

A thumbs up from Cardinal third grader Mercedes B. as she works to sell her recycled economics goods. Her product ended up being a top seller for the project.

Great work everyone!
