Elementary students learn money management


Learning how to manage money at a young age.

That was the goal earlier today at the Marquette Montessori Academy in South Bend.  Students ranged from kindergarten to fourth grade.

The teachers were college students from IUSB.  They taught basic city economics and important concepts like trade.

"We asked for examples of what kind of things they traded and one kid was like I trade Pokemon cards, I was like that's exactly what we are talking about, so they did have some background and I was impressed with that," says Hailey Hennessy a student at IUSB.

In total over 400 elementary students went through the program.
