Students learn about cities

Natasha Tipton’s third grade class at Catawba Springs elementary school recently finished the Junior Achievement program titled “Our City,” where they learned about how a city works and why planning and zones are important. They also learned about the various types of jobs that are necessary in the city, such as bankers, and why banks and credit unions are important. They pretended to be entrepreneurs and started their own restaurants and learned about the different ways that we get our news. The class was a five-week class taught by Melisa Harrison of 1st Advantage Insurance Group.
