Seventh graders at Springville Junior High School recently participated in the ice cream shop business activity in CTE (Career Technology Education). The students got to serve ice cream at their “creamery,” called Castle Creamery, themed after our school’s mascot, the knights. The creamery took place on Wednesday, November tenth in Mrs. Linda Woodfield’s seventh-grade CTE class.
According to Mrs. Linda Woodfield, CTE teacher, the purpose of the activity was to teach the kids how to set up a business and the four P’s of marketing: product, place, price, and promotion. According to Landon Simkins, a seventh grader that took part in the creamery, they had the activity to learn how to cook.
The activity wasn’t only educational, but also fun. Landon said, “I liked serving the ice cream.” But Amber Roberson, also a seventh-grader, said, “I liked watching the ice-cream being served.”
