The sixth-grade students at Triton Elementary took a field trip to Fort Wayne to the Junior Achievement Biztown facility. The students have been participating in a 19-lesson curriculum education program through JA Biztown. Throughout the program students are encouraged to use critical thinking skills to learn key economic concepts as they explore and enhance their understanding of free enterprise. Students all took a hands-on approach to the activities and participated in a simulated community. Students developed an understanding of the relationship between what they learned in school and their participation in their business. During their visit, students learned the importance of community, teamwork, money management, banking and responsibility.
