The Visitation Academy fifth grade students took an exciting field trip to Junior Achievement's BizTown last week! BizTown is an innovative program from Junior Achievement that introduces students to the free enterprise system through classroom instruction and active participation in a simulated community. Students complete six weeks of teacher-led classroom instruction prior to visiting BizTown. Mrs. Angie Jung’s fifth grade Social Studies class learned economic concepts related to banking, business, citizenship, competition, work-readiness, quality, ethics, and competition prior to their field trip. This real-life experience is certainly one the fifth graders will never forget!
