Finance B Class
Written By: Malak, School News Team
The 6th and 7th grade students in the Finance B class are quite busy with a couple interesting things that they’re working on. The first thing that they have been working on since September are their stocks. They basically look up stocks for companies online. If the stocks are low enough, the students buy them. They hold those stocks for a while until the price of the stocks go up, then the students sell them to gain a profit. This is great practice for the future if you want to make money or save up for something like college.
The second major project that the students in the Finance B class have been working on is their storefront project. The storefront project is pretty complicated and confusing if you don’t know how to do specific things. The main point is to make a business. It could be anything from a restaurant to an electronics store. I decided to focus on one specific group that was making a bakery. They named this bakery CMK Desserts. One of the participants, named Crystal, said “What we have done so far is made a 2D model, a 3D model, a website, a logo, and we also found the expenses for the project.” Crystal explained that the expenses were basically the amount of money for the room, appliances, staff, and more stuff that would be in a store. Her partner Kaitlyn also helped Crystal to build the 3D model on a game called Minecraft. She installed mods to help her get more items that would be in a bakery. “I think it’s really fun that we get to make our own store.” Kaitlyn said, “It’s also cool how we get to use things like Minecraft to help make our design.”
I think that the Finance B class would be fun to join, especially if you’re into business. The Finance B students definitely seems to think so to. You can tell if you look around the classroom and see how the students are very engaged in their work. “What I like about Finance is selling and buying stocks and also doing projects like our storefronts.” said Kaitlyn. Most kids would think that business stuff is boring, but Mr. Manalo definitely brightens it up with fun projects.
