My Student is Starting a Business???
We are currently learning economics through our PBL unit: Mind Your Own Business. After watching some clips of Shark Tank, students began exploring what makes a successful business. We formed teams based on student interests, and groups have developed a business and product name and design, sales and marketing plans and prototypes. Most teams are using Google Slides as a presentation tool. This Friday at 10:30, the student businesses will be presenting their business plans. We would love for you to join us! We have invited community "sharks" (business leaders) to listen to the business pitches, offer the teams feedback and help us select one to invest in. One business will receive funds for us to actually create, market and sell the selected product. Students will be analyzing the effectiveness of the business. Profits will be used to offset our expenses for our Jefferson City Field Trip this spring.
