    PLEASE READ: This bundle includes secure PDFs of 4 of my literature and non fiction reading resources. If you purchased my Lemonade War literature unit, Lunch Money literature unit, Bread Winner literature unit, or Business Non Fiction Reading and Research resource, this bundle contains the same products. Links to the individual products above.

    These 4 reading resources all have a entrepreneur and business aspect to them. The novel studies provide a great opportunity for students to use money math and to think about a way to develop their own small business. The novel units can be taught whole group one after another (~3 months to teach), or teachers can break students into 3 reading groups and complete each novel unit simultaneously (~1 month to teach).

    As a culminating activity, read about famous business founders and their companies. Complete a research essay that focuses on one successful company and its history.
