      Scott- In middle school, we did this by asking students to create their own ice cream shops. They had to research menu offerings, pricing of materials, lease, marketing, personnel, etc.. and create business plans. There were intricate spreadsheets they completed for a cost analysis and they needed to determine what the start-up costs would be. Then, teams had to present to the "board" (i.e, all team teachers) about their ideas. They got dressed up, showed Prezis, etc... There is so much involved with creating a business and different students excelled at taking leadership roles in different areas. They loved it!

        That is great idea! I do a very similiar project with my classes. Although I let them as a team of 4-5 students come up with a business idea and then put together a business plan. The loan officer from a local bank comes and the student teams present their business plan for either approval or denial of start up loan. I have them present each part of the plan as they prepare it and video it during the semester to build confidence with presentation techniques. Thanks
