Cathy Wallace's second graders at La Jolla Elementary recently learned economic concepts of producers, consumers and community services. To reinforce these ideas, the students in B2 planned, designed and constructed a "Busytown" modeled after businesses and attractions in La Jolla and San Diego. The student created-town included Hotel La Jolla, a Ferrari Shop, the San Diego Zoo, a bank, La Jolla Elementary School, a train station — complete with moving train, an airport, a cupcake shop, restaurants, a pharmacy and more.
