Parkway School Shark Tank 2019

Students present their ideas to Paramus administratorsParkway School students in Mrs. Bonner’s fourth-grade class participated in their very own Shark Tank! After completing the Shark Tank unit, our innovative students collaborated with a partner to build a product and create a Google Slide Show presentation to catch a “shark.” The “sharks” included Paramus administrators Dr. Michele Robinson, Tim Donahue, and Dara Carr. The teams presented their inventions to the “sharks” hoping to get a bite and make a deal. The products created were hot/cold bottle, easy kid breakfast, AVO shovel, AJ bucket, and four-seasons jacket. Teamwork, research abilities, and public speaking were just a few of the skills that the children experienced. We have a lot of budding entrepreneurs in Paramus!
