PRINCE GEORGE - Spruceland Elementary has a creative way to offer real-world experience to its students. The school held its annual business fair offering students a chance to sell products they made and learn about running a business.

Students create a product and take it from an idea to a physical item and offer it for sale to their classmates and parents. The fair can be a big confidence builder for the kids, who get a chance to step outside their comfort zones.

There are a variety of products available at the fair. Students sold cake-pops, ice cream, slime and many other items. Students have to take their product all the way from the idea stage all the way to a final item for retail.

Part of the business fair assignment is teaching students that businesses are part of the community. To do this, students are donating ten percent of the money from their sales to the SPCA and Children's Hospital.
