This is a mini-project meant to be used in a high school business or marketing course. I use this with my Intro to Business and Marketing students when we are learning about the four functions of business. Students work with a partner (or you could adapt to do the assignment individually) and pick a product and trace its development through production, marketing, management, and financing. Rubric included for grading.
My aim in creating this was for students to see how all products and businesses use the four functions. Students get choice in the assignment when picking their product making the learning and material more relevant for them. Class periods at my school are 90 minutes, and this assignment took 2 full class periods including student presentations.
