CAMPBELL, Ohio – Fifth grade students in the Campbell schools are creating and selling products for their Kids BIZ project to benefit the Campbell Food Pantry and help cover the cost of student field trips.

“This project has brought friendships, creativity and learning for all of our students and we cannot wait to see how successful their businesses continue to be,” said teacher Micky Dovas in a news release.

The business project includes students designing t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, personalized backpacks, bracelets, pencils, erasers, water bottles, stress balls and light-up jewelry to sell during homeroom each morning, as well as at school events.

Throughout the year, students marketed their products through presentations, advertisements and persuasive essays. They learned business record-keeping and determined labor and production costs.

The project encompassed classroom learning standards in language arts, science, social studies and math, Dovas noted.
