This is an activity 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 local, regional, national, and multinational businesses. After I give basic information/definitions about the different types, my students research businesses they are familiar with to complete this graphic organizer.
My aim in creating this was for students to be able to classify the businesses they visit. It is also helps engage students because they can choose businesses that interest them to research. Class periods at my school are 90 minutes, and this assignment took about 45 minutes total. I also encouraged students to call local businesses instead of trying to find their information online.
