Use this PROJECT PROPOSAL form with your students to have them come up with a creative, innovative invention that they would propose on a Shark Tank episode. Their project goal is to become financially successful with their new innovative idea and the first step is to complete this proposal form. This activity leads into a Persuasive Writing Unit where they will have to convince these "shark-tank" investors (the teachers) that their project should be invested in.
We are going to invite the administration in to be Shark Tank investors so students will prepare an oral report to accompany this.
This is editable and can be used for other purposes. If you are interested in the rest of the unit that goes along with this, let me know!
My fourth graders read the ReadyGen text, "Using Money" which teaches all about money concepts, like savings, debt, interest, investments, etc. This goes in conjunction with this.
