Starter For Ten Enterprise Project. Lesson Two - Could You Be An Entrepreneur?

Starter For Ten Enterprise Project. Lesson Two - Could You Be An Entrepreneur?

This is the second lesson in a series of fourteen which make up the Starter For Ten project. Starter For Ten is a whole term, cross-curricular project for upper primary classes. A series of lessons provide the class with the knowledge and skills they need to start their own businesses in small groups. Groups are loaned £10 to start their business with the businesses running for four weeks after around six weeks learning and preparation. Starter For Ten provides a highly motivating, real world context for learning with pupils taking full responsibility for their businesses. The pupils are also responsible for making key decisions including what to spend any profit on and whether to act as philanthropists and opt to donate a proportion of their income to charity. The full project covers a number of curriculum areas: literacy, numeracy, health and wellbeing, religious and moral education, social studies and technologies. All lessons are fully linked to the Scottish Curriculum For Excellence. Each of the fourteen lessons includes a lesson plan, a PowerPoint presentation and any worksheets or other resources required. Lesson plans include learning objectives, suggestions for differentiation, a starter activity, a main lesson, a plenary activity, suggestions for further development, opportunities for display, and relevant second level Curriculum For Excellence experiences and outcomes. LESSON 2 OVERVIEW: In this lesson the class discuss the qualities of successful entrepreneurs. They then relate these to themselves and identify their own qualities which could help them when they start their business. More detail of the ‘Starter For Ten’ project is given to the pupils in this lesson. The children then form themselves into business groups and begin brainstorming business ideas. LESSON 2 LEARNING OBJECTIVES: 1. I can identify qualities in myself which could help me as an entrepreneur. 2. I can find appropriate business partners.

World Markets for Organic Fruit and Vegetables- Germany

World Markets for Organic Fruit and Vegetables- Germany

This is a Frayer Model Reading Guide for students to complete while learning about organic farming in Germany. The guide comes in 3 formats (PDF, Word and a Word form). The article is hyperlinked in all three documents, as well as included as a PDF. You can have students handwrite their answers, enter them on their devices in the Word form or you can personalize the worksheet to meet your specific need. A segment for the article: "Germany is the country with the longest tradition in organic farming and marketing for health products. The first reform shops (Reformhäuser) opened more than 100 years ago as part of a food reform movement. About 25-30 years ago the first natural food stores were founded. Mainly carrying organic products, they expressed criticism of industrial society and presented an alternative to conventional grocery trade. Together with growing organic agricultural production they experienced double-figure growth rates. Only many years later (early 1990s) supermarkets entered the field." Thanks for looking!
