Elementary School Programs :: JA Our Community™
What lies beyond your front door? Lets explore it! JA volunteers display a poster of a typical community, and the students meet some of the people who live and work there. Through hands-on activities, the students learn about workers, the work they perform, why workers are paid, what taxes are and how they are used, and where to save money.
JA Our Community examines responsibilities and economic opportunities available within a community.
See the Scope and Sequence for a complete listing of program concepts and skills.

JA Our Community includes a CD used in Session Five: Money Moves. The song is available here as an MP3 file.
