With American Enterprise Day coming up, it’s never too early to start teaching students about the value of the American Free Enterprise System! This month’s classroom integration idea asks students to create their own business. Students can work as groups to deliver a pitch on why their business should get an investment. They will need to create the business’s product, mission, goals, expected customer base, and an estimated profit they expect to earn.
The goal is to teach students the various factors that come along with starting your own business. It also demonstrates the value of entrepreneurship. To make things more interesting, try offering a prize to the group that manages to win the investment.
