CHOOSING A BUSINESS LESSON PLAN

 

Teaching Materials:

Method:
The teacher will introduce the topic. Examples could be done by individuals or the class could be broken into small groups depending on the ability of the class. After the teacher gives the groups or individuals time to complete the various examples they would come back together as a class to discuss them.

Excerpt from Lesson:

So you’d like to start a business!  That’s a great idea, but where do you start? The best place to start is deciding what you are going to sell. A business takes resources and uses them to create either a product or a service to sell to people.

Resources can be any one of a list of things. For example, if you have a business producing aprons, your resources would be the cloth, the sewing machines, cash to start your business, premises from which to operate, and the people who sew the aprons.

Your business can either produce something, like the example above in which aprons were produced, or your business can provide a service. An example of a business that provides a service would be a car washing business.
