Elementary School Programs :: JA Our City™
A city is a place where a lot of people live, work, play, and go to school. So JA classroom volunteers help students build a city! The students construct paper buildings, map out a city, write newspaper articles, plan their own restaurants, and examine why banks are important.
JA Our City considers economic development, local businesses, and career opportunities.
See the Scope and Sequence for a complete listing of program concepts and skills.
Be sure to visit the Resource Room for helpful links.
Among the many resources contained in the JA Our City program kit, the “City Zones” poster illustrates different aspects of a city.
