Boxland is Oasis’ own town created and run by the students
All students grades kinder through sixth learn to work together to bring Boxland to life. The students elect a mayor and a city council, and design their own businesses to operate or they apply for a job during the two day event. Boxland also has a police department, health department, finance department, waste management department, and an unemployment office. Students must purchase business permits to run their own business such as a food stands, nail salons, and hobby stores. Boxland is a huge highlight to end the school year. This is our favorite school-wide project based-learning example. Students learn academically while seeing the real-life relevance. Families are invited. Sharkies, money created by the students, is available to families for a small donation to come shop and dine at Oasis’ Boxland.
