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.

How to Succeed In Business: Teaching Economics in Elementary and Middle School

$$$$$$$How to Succeed in Business$$$$$$$ This project is based on a successful school business: “Chapman’s Chips,” a six-week mini-course for gifted students, grades 4-6. Goals 1. Students involved in running a business providing a product or service for half an hour each day will be responsible for their specific jobs and will work together to make their business a success. Each student will be responsible for performing the job they chose and helping support other students who may have difficulty. 2. Students will have the opportunity to share their experience after working in groups or individually, varying the method of sharing, as well as keep a written, artistic, or recorded summary of their experience each day. Students’ reflections will be part of their portfolio, along with their job and job description, and any other artifacts they have.
