Are you looking for a way to teach economic knowledge and skills to your students without boring them to tears? This fun and engaging project based learning unit is perfect for any middle or high school economics or social studies class. In this project students become entrepreneurs and create their own businesses. It mirrors the Small Business Authority's guide to creating a new business and walks students through ten different steps beginning with brainstorming business concepts and ending with a class business exposition where students present their businesses and compete for cash from investors. The project comes complete with open ended critical thinking questions for many steps, as well as rubrics, and other handouts.
