This is an Economics Project. The students will have an opportunity to create their own business from the ground up. They will look t real estate, products, product construction, marketing, retail design, as well as evaluate the success of their business. This lesson is detailed. I have listed how man days to give each portion of the project as well as a rubric to grade by. This is a lesson that will stick with your students for a very long time.
Thanks for the feedback. I am so glad that they enjoyed it!

Great activity! I made some minor adjustments but this worked really well in my 11th grade Econ class. I had them do all of the advertisements. Also, they didnt need as much time for the first few activities so next time I plan to put those all in day 1..
