About JA BizTown In a Box
Just like its big sister JA BizTown at the Bill Poe Family Junior Achievement Campus, JA BizTown In a Box provides educators with all the resources necessary to effectively integrate financial literacy and career readiness into their elementary school classrooms.
The JA BizTown In a Box learning experience comes neatly packaged in a box and contains EVERYTHING – lesson plans, resources, materials and all the necessary items -educators need to create an immersive role-playing learning experience for their students.
JA BizTown In a Box includes:
- All materials, programs and simulation activities have been modified to reflect the in-classroom JA BizTown experience
