When life gives you lemons, teach about economics!
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!
