This morning, the entire Stevenson PACT was turned into a giant (especially if you were a kinder) market place where all students traded their "goods and services", using beads as currency. Just another of PACT's PBL (project base learning) showcase aimed at students themselves. In fact, Market Day is one of the earliest PBL productions that began over a decade ago. Unlike the other early school-wide PBL showcase, Stevensburg-Castroville that fifth-graders produce and show to other grades, all grades participates in production - and trade.
These "goods and services", of course, accumulate months of learning, planning, and making at appropriate grade level. (All pictures are in panorama. Google+'s previews will not do them justice - open them in viewer.)
