Significant Question:  How are communities and citizens and interdependent?

Masterwork:  Pam American Unity by Diego Rivera

Original Creation: Students add a 21st century panel to a mural that depicts how communities have adapted and grown based on the artistry of Diego Rivera.

Overview: Students use the masterwork mural to springboard into the concept of communities.  Students identify different basic geographical communities through exploring maps.  Through JA BizTown students continue to study the foundations of community by studying government and economy that is necessary for communities to thrive.  Students apply skills of personal finance to practice economic concepts.  Students work within a business community to plan and simulate a work force by going to JA BizTown.  Students are able to make connections about how citizenship and interdependence is essential for any community which includes: local, national, and global levels.
