Market stall a learning experience for kids
MANSFIELD Primary School (MPS) students in grade five and six combined learning and selling at the Farmers Market recently.
Grade five students were completing a project on financial planning, including working out the costs of having a stall, the cost to make the goods, and profit margins based on expected selling price.
They also tackled quality control issues as part of preparing and setting up their stall and the products offered for sale.
Meanwhile, in grade six, it was full steam ahead with art, environment and ceramics students producing a wonderful mix of festive gift and decorative products for stocking the stall.
It was certainly an eye catching display that the students created, and a wonderful practical learning opportunity as well.
