Experience the power of public education.
Fourth Grade students in Mrs. Andee Johnson's (Day's) & Mrs. Shelia Butler's rooms conducted a literature study of the book Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies. At the conclusion of the literature discussion, students formed 3 teams to have a RES Lemonade War of their own. The 3 teams were The Magician's Lemonade, The Yellow Beach & Sour Power. Students created a business plan to detail various aspects of developing a lemonade stand such as the big idea, marketing strategies, recipe, start up costs, pricing and profit. They also created a financial goal. Prior to the start of the RES Lemonade War, students of each group created flyers & posters to advertise their lemonade to prospective buyers (K-5 students) and decorated a lemonade stand that was donated by Mrs. Johnson's husband. On the day of the RES Lemonade War, K-5 students were given one ticket to be used at the lemonade stand of their choice. The winning lemonade stand was The Magician's Lemonade. Their lemonade was made with white sugar, lemon juice and water.
