Last week, the Grade 2 students visited a nearby supermarket for a first-hand experience in choosing and paying for goods independently using real money. They were asked to bring Php 100 to buy one healthy snack and drink. Before leaving school, they paired up with a buddy whom they had to stick with throughout the activity.
It was such an exciting activity for the children! First, they explored the place in search for the snack and drink sections. After looking at their options, they made their choices and checked the price to make sure that they stay within budget. Finally, they lined up at the cashier and counted their change before leaving.
At school, the children enjoyed eating and drinking what they bought from the supermarket while sharing their experiences with one another.
