PYP 2 classes are actively engaged in planning and setting up their own business ventures. As students inquire into the central idea, Businesses

They are looking at the key concepts of function, connection and causation and related concepts of communication, systems, impact (of advertising and marketing), supply and demand. They are inquiring into
- The way we use money
- The different roles and responsibilities in a business
- The impact of advertising on consumers

In 2B we are also making businesses and our group is called the Cozy Café because we made our café the most cozy business of all. We are going to make really fresh food especially for kids and we made a lot of posters so people know about it. We will do it on June the 15th. Happy shopping. Chikki, Isobel, Marios
