East Central students create realty company, sell ‘Happyville’

At East Central Elementary, Kourtney Green and Nicole Bentley’s fourth grade English Language Arts classroom transformed into a city called “Happyville” where the housing market was booming and properties were up for sale. Students studied point of view as they read property descriptions and identified from which point of view the description was written; the realtor, seller, buyer or neighbor. The students then rewrote the descriptions from a different point of view. A little entrepreneurship was sprinkled into the lesson as well as it culminated in students earning their realtors licenses through Ms. Green’s Realty.
