Exciting things are happening with the 3rd grade LEAP group! They are at the beginning stages of a Project Based Learning (PBL) project where they are learning the be entrepreneurs and will be forming their very own friendship bracelet company! They will be traveling through the entire cycle of starting a business including designing, manufacturing, marketing, and selling their product. They will be required to keep detailed financial records as they go through the steps of starting a company. The students are VERY excited about this project. Yesterday, we began our time together by reading a story about a boy and a girl who start a lemonade business. We analyzed what happened during each phase of this and then we were able to come up with the "Driving Question" that the students will refer to as this project takes shape.
I will continue to post updates along the way on this blog. Eventually, the students will hold a Sales Bazzar, complete with commercials about their product! Stay tuned!
