This Zip File includes everything you need for this Research Project. It includes a Power Point Project Grading Rubric, Note-taking Student Worksheet, Example Power Point Project, Simple Power Point Template (use is optional) and a Ten Day Lesson Guide with classroom management tips.
Overview of Project:
In this project, students will research and present information about a local business in their community. Throughout the project, students will learn about entrepreneurialism and the benefits for working for specific companies, such as scholarship programs, volunteer opportunities, and retirement plans.
The purpose of this activity is to help students understand the foundation of a business, and how a company maintains success and creates growth. Students will become aware of ways specific businesses support the community by sponsoring programs, creating volunteer opportunities for employees, and making conscious efforts to improve the environment.
I have included a model Power Point Presentation for the teacher to present as an example of what is expected from students. To view a shorter version of this Power Point, take a look at the Free Download Preview.
When I completed this activity with my students, they were so involved and fascinated with the aspects of their business. They became more aware of the importance of applying to quality businesses, especially if scholarships are offered.
I would love to hear about how you used this project in your own classroom. Thanks for your interest in this product.
