Teaching Entrepreneurship may be the most integrated and authentic project one could teach in schools. So many different concepts, skills, and knowledge students learn in order to be an entrepreneur (successful or not). Students learned about making a business plan, market research, finances, advertising, communication, and most importantly grit and perseverance.
For the culminating task for this project, students designed and created a product or service that filled a need or want of a specific target audience.
At the end of the unit, students pitched their business ideas and products to a panel to convince the school/PTA to continue to sell their product in the future to our community.
