Introducing ESL Castle’s CLASS BUSINESS PROJECT! This THREE WEEK project teaches students how to work together and open a business of their own design. This gives students real hands-on experience with basic business principles, money-related math, and the value of shared responsibility. This project does not have to be exclusive because it can run alongside your regularly scheduled lessons. In fact, this project ENCOURAGES STUDENTS TO DO THEIR HOMEWORK! That’s right! If a student does their homework then they will get Classbucks to pay for goods or services at their friends’ stores.
Not only are students making businesses, they are also coming together to create a class government and learn the principles behind voting and making laws. This download also comes with the option of creating a class newspaper where students can write about their businesses, their government, or anything about their actual town.
This download includes everything you need to run this project: a 4-Page Teacher Handbook, Three Vocabulary Worksheets, a 7-Page Business Plan Packet, Three Class PowerPoints (within one pdf), an Awards Template, and Printable Money.
If you are going to do a project with your students – this is the one to do! Although it is designed for elementary school students, the material can be adapted for grades above and below.
