Fourth Grade Students Enjoy Junior Achievement

          Every Thursday we have Junior Achievement with Mrs. Punches. We learn about businesses and corporations. We learned about a sole proprietor and a partnership. A sole proprietor is when you own a business by yourself and a partnership is when you have two people owning a business. We also learned about technophobes and technophiles. A technophobe is someone who isnít comfortable with technology. A technophile is someone who is comfortable with technology and adjusts to new technical things fast. We played a game called Get Connected and it was about technophobes and technophiles. I learned a lot of things from Junior Achievement. I like Junior Achievement. ~Emilee

       Every Thursday since April 8, 2010 we have been doing Junior Achievement.  We see Mrs. Punches and she tells us about Junior Achievement. First we learned about partnership, sole proprietor, and then opportunity cost. Then we learned about the three resources, the human resource, the natural resource, and the capital resource. We also learned about technophobe and technophile. I already knew about technology and scarcity. We also played Get Connected. I like Junior Achievement.  ~Emily

          Every Thursday Mrs. Punches comes and teaches us about Junior Achievement. One thing we learned in Junior Achievement was about businesses. We learned that a sole proprietor means one person who owns a business. Another thing we learned about was partnerships and corporations. Those just mean bigger businesses and with more people and owners. We also learned about technophobes and technophiles. Technophobes are people who are afraid of or donít want to try a newer peace of technology. A technophile is someone who will pretty much try any new peace of technology. I love Junior Achievement! ~Jeremiah

           Every Thursday for the past two weeks my fourth grade class has been having Mrs. Punches come in for Junior Achievement. In Junior Achievement you learn about resources in our Earth. There are three main resources and they are capital, human, and natural resources. In the natural resources there are water, air, minerals, and trees. In the human resources are people who do work that a business needs. The last one is capital resources. They are things needed to run a business. I think having Mrs. Punches come to our class for Junior Achievement is really fun.  ~James

          Every Thursday Mrs.Punches comes in. She teaches a lot of stuff. She taught us three resources. The three resources are natural resources, human resources, and capital resources. We played a game on resources. It was fun! ~Junior

Junior got six and so did Jaylen so they hade to roll again. Junior got six again so he went first. So if you landed on a picture you wouldnít get any points. It was weird because Junior won the game with 13 points. I really like Mrs. Punches. ~Allison

Capital resources are things that someone needs to run a business. Then the next week we had to put that nollage together and play this Junior Achievement game called Get Connected.
