Lesson 17

Welcome Back!  We FINALLY get to say our visit to BizTown is THIS YEAR!!  Students are so excited!  REMINDER - Our BizTown Visit is Monday, April 20 from 8:45 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.  MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!

Today we reviewed writing checks and making entries in registries.  Students will continue to practice these skills but now we are moving to lessons involving being responsible citizens and employees.  Students took a Citizen Pledge and registered to vote (Citizens Guide Page 29).


Next, we talked about taxes and the flow of monies, goods and services between citizens, businesses and our government.  Finally we identified the difference between Public and Private Goods and Services.



1.  If your student did not complete the voter registration form (Citizens Guide Page 29), please have them do so and submit in class next week.

2.  Students should complete Page 37 of the Citizens Guide, identifying Public and Private Goods and Services.
