PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In today's world, there's no denying it. We need business-minded students to matriculate into a fast-paced global economy. This 89 page supplemental file is meant to enhance your Social Studies curriculum by allowing your students to experience what it's like to own and operate a (lemonade) business through virtual simulations and in-class explorations. You can take this as far as you'd like. It includes simple and complex vocabulary, so that you can take your students as deep as you want to go... or you can keep it as simple as you want. The business plan template is set up so that you can choose the pages you want to use. Don't feel like you have to use it all! Check out my preview file for more details... and read on! Happy Teaching!

Loved using this with my third graders!! I used several pages of the business plan and we had a lemonade business competition to conclude our economics unit. The second grade consumers were given fake money and each third grader used a spreadsheet to track how many cups they sold and for what price. Economics Star was fun, too.

Product Questions & Answers

On  April 8, 2014,  Buyer asked:
Hello. Do you have the unit plan you followed for this? My team would love to use it, but need a layout of the progression.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  April 18, 2014One Extra Degree answered:
Hi! I really don't have anything written out that I follow every single year as a rule. I use stories from our third grade Reading Street series because they address economics in the first unit, then I work in activities from my Economics 101 pack. Towards the end of the unit, we do the lemonade economics unit. Are you referring to the progression of the lemonade unit itself?
On  October 16, 2013Janae Van Orman (TpT Seller) asked:
How does this unit compare to your other Economy Unit (Economy 101: Kid-Friendly Supplemental Resources)? This packet would go really well with our basal story, "Lemonade for Sale", but I'm wondering if it would be a stand alone economics unit, or if I should get the other unit too/instead. Thanks! :)
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 16, 2013One Extra Degree answered:
This unit is centered around creating a business plan for a lemonade stand. The other unit addresses economics in general. It includes posters and printables to teach various economic concepts. I use them together. The lemonade economics unit is an extension project. :) Hope that makes sense. Let me know if you have any further questions. :)
