Grade 3 students become miners

Third graders got to run a mine this morning. 
They just finished a unit on rocks and minerals
They received $20.00 of start up capital
and had to purchase tools for mining
(paperclips,popsicle sticks,toothpicks)
They needed to mine responsibly 
and pay their workers

What a wonderful way to connect economics, science and math skills!
