Starting a Business
Economics is integrated into all subject areas in our fifth grade classes. The students have shown a keen interest in business as a result of participating in a program called Mini-Society. It was their opinion that all kids should have the opportunity to learn how to start a business. The page takes students through the steps necessary to do so. The page will be an excellent tool for the teachers in addressing the business aspect of economics. Although it does not go into the ingrating of other subject areas, it is a place that kids can see the big picture aspect of the starting of a business. The entry includes basic vocabulary needed to understand business, a business plan to get started, links to go the "extra mile" and a game to reinforce the learning.
