This print-and-go unit gives students the opportunity to build their entrepreneurial skills. Students will research the basics about starting a small business, design their own arcade, create a commercial advertising their business, present what they have learned, then reflect on their learning.
Unit Structure: The unit is designed with a cover page for easy photocopying as a workbook style unit. The unit is “print and go”. All work space is included in the packet. There are several websites listed for students to conduct their own research. The final page lists educational websites that students can visit to further their learning on this topic.
This project can be used on a daily or intermittent basis, to suit the needs of your class. It can be used class-wide, or for individual students that may benefit from enrichment opportunities.
