The site offers a fair number of activities. The challenge is that you have a lot of links out to materials so it can be time consuming to use to put together a complete assignment.

First of all this material is great to give some basic information about entrepreneurship and elements of business develpment to people who are new to the field of entrepreneurship. The content is presented in a basic way which makes every user easy to navigate. The pages are somehow too long and the content could gain more usability through a more stuctured presentation.

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.
