Entrepreneurial Skills

25 Feb

Since today is the birth date of the late great visionary and entrepreneur, Steve Jobs (1955-2011), it only seems fitting to offer this FREE teaching guide on this day. (See “teacher’s guide link below). Relevant for grades 3-5.

Entice your students with a brief summary:

A visionary and entrepreneur, Steve Jobs co-founded Apple Computers in 1976 and helped launch the personal-computer revolution. He left Apple in 1985 and returned in 1996 as CEO, and the company, which had been struggling for years, went on to become one of the most successful companies in the world, featuring the must-have Macs, iPods, iPads and iPhones.

Your students are sure to be excited and motivated because they can relate to one or all of these products. Once your students are intrigued, introduce your next reading project: The Lemonade War

Encourage the development of students’ entrepreneurial skills with the economics and math activities in this teacher’s guide for The Lemonade War, a book about two siblings’ business endeavors and relationship. Guide classroom discussion of the book with the questions provided in this packet.

Have a good weekend!
