Program Information 

JA Our Families introduces students to entrepreneurship and learning objectives for first-grade social studies, including families, neighborhoods, money, and needs and wants.
 
Following participation in the program, students will be able to describe similarities and differences in families; begin to understand that families must earn money to pay for the things they need and want; recognize the importance of entrepreneurial businesses to the neighborhood; identify goods and services provided by local businesses; and explain one of the entrepreneurial characteristics: Satisfy a Need or a Want.
 
JA Our Families is recommended for students in first grade. The average time for each of its five sessions is 30 minutes. Materials are packaged in a self-contained kit that includes detailed plans for the volunteer and materials for 30 students.
 
The program correlates to state social studies, English, and math standards and to Common Core State Standards in English/language arts and mathematics.
