Second-grade students at Ranch Elementary School, 43521 N. Kenworthy Road in San Tan Valley, have been learning about money, including its value and how to count it.

“School is super engaging for our second-grade students at Ranch Elementary,” Principal Sue Kruse said in a release.

“Presently, they are learning real-life applications of counting money, spending money and finding out how much they have left after their purchases,” she said.

The students were given a dollar, 20 dimes and 20 pennies with instructions to become the seller or the buyer. After they made their sale or purchase, they were asked to switch places and become the buyer or seller.

“Students had fun learning the value of money,” Principal Kruse said in the release.

Ranch Elementary School is in the J.O. Combs Unified School District.
