Over the past week we've been studying goods & services, and producers & consumers. To culminate our Community Jobs unit, the students participated in a snack mix assembly line.
We discussed how a real assembly line is designed to work and how we were going to use the process to produce our own snack mix. Each student had a job either scooping items in the bag (Thank you parents for your donations!), labeling & closing the bags, or team supervisor. We divided into two teams and tried to see who could produce ten bags first.
The children had a great time and got a hands-on opportunity to experience being a producer and producing a good. They also got to be a consumer when they took the snack mix home to share with their families. It was a really fun activity!
Our finished product!
