Great for Summer School, and After-school Activities!
Includes Activities, Lessons and Handouts
Students create their own businesses and develop products. With strong math and social studies, language arts and science connections to standards! Units meet the needs of Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards' Practices.
Allow students to apply skills as they create all the elements needed for business! Four units appropriate for grades 2 - 8.
Each book gives instructions for having students participate in projects. Each of the projects are related to the world of work and meet the needs for State-level standards (math, science, ELA) They would be appropriate for 9th graders. They have students work in small groups 4-6 people.
Each project culminates in a final event:
*Manufacturing - they develop a product and sell to others in school (real money)
*Construction - they design buildings and "sell" them to customers (checkbooks)
*Health Care - they take on the role of workers and open for business
*Travel - they study a part of the world, develop sales brochures and sell travel packages (play money)
For each project, there are steps that students must accomplish to prepare for the final event. These steps include things related to management, financials, sales/communication, technical/production. They all have customers come in from other classrooms to participate.
Basically you get a book with the teaching instructions and handouts that you can copy for the number of your students.
