A lesson in duct tape

Brawner Intermediate School fifth-graders got a lesson in retail marketing and sales during a recent project. “The kids came up with a company name and then researched on YouTube what items they wanted to make out of duct tape,” said teacher Nicole Moody, who utilized project based learning for the assignment. The students set up a store to display their merchandise – with everything from ties to coasters. Monies from the sales will go toward future class field trips.
