2017 Community Showcase
Bringing the Community into the Middle School Classroom
Middle school students are invited to compete in this Wisconsin statewide competition showcasing their community by using statistical, evidence-based economic data. This fun and exciting program for middle school students presented by EconomicsWisconsin will raise the awareness of the economy within their community, while also helping them acquire important skills that will serve them well in the global challenges of the 21st Century.
Through this project, student teams of 2-4 will research and investigate components of their community. Using the information they have gathered, the students will create a showcase of their community.
The final project must incorporate digital tools appropriate for the effective presentation (e.g., PowerPoint, Prezi, or PreZetit) and may include other enhancements such as videos (e.g., YouTube) or slide shows e.g., Animoto).
The presentation must be able to be accessible to anyone online once completed.
