Content clearly offers activities that align to core subjects taught to elementary aged children yet introduces students to business ownership. I would suggest learning objectives for each section of activities. I would also suggest that students are challenged to think through their buying decisions as a part of the activities. For example, challenge students to explain why, when, how and where they make their purchases whereby you would tie the responses into the Decision Making / Communications Skills section. …Very good selection of activities for engaging children in career development and entrepreneurship.

Technical Remarks:

Engaging technology such as online games and including documentaries about youth entrepreneurs to deliver several of the activities would be also be recommended.

This activity contains some great introduction to types of business ventures.  Consider discussing licensing, and management agreements.  Create learning objectives. Narrow your scope or add resources for different types of ventures so they can be consistently covered.

Technical Remarks:

Use high resolution graphics.

This resource provides basic information for individuals seeking to start or grow a small business. While the site provides good information, including teaching tools and resources, it is not interactive or engaging.

Technical Remarks:

This website requires only basic online navigational skills.
