Corinne Stremmel for White Bear Press writes:
The fourth graders of Willow Lane Elementary School in White Bear Lake [in Minnesota] are taking the premise of reality show ‘Shark Tank’ and making it bite-sized.
Willow Lane reading teacher Leigh Anderson and her students are preparing to pitch a charity of their choice to five ‘sharks’ in the hope that a $2,000 donation will be awarded to their winning charity. …
The Minnow Tank’s pilot began in 2018 and various iterations of the project followed in 2019 and 2020, but 2021 is the first year Anderson has officially had the project down pat with her fourth graders. …
