Includes Units 1, 2, and 3 and the Leader's Guide of the EntrepreneurShip Investigation series! Authored by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and aimed at grades 6+.
- In Unit 1, youth investigate businesses in their communities, discover the traits of an entrepreneur, and take a skills test to see if they have these entrepreneurial traits. Other activities include investigating entrepreneurs in youths' families and exploring potential business ideas.
- The entrepreneurship curriculum continues with Unit 2, in which youth explore the core values of their business and learn how to give back to the community. Time management skills, ethics and legal considerations are all themes within Unit 2.
- Once the foundation is in place, Unit 3 continues youths' entrepreneurial journeys with the “nuts and bolts” of starting a business. Youth create a Business Plan and a marketing strategy, and then use the internet to promote their product or service to reach a broader audience.
- The Leader’s Guide describes the activities, provides answers to questions, provides a list of supplies needed for each activity, shows the National and State Education Standards, and describes the success indicator for each lesson.
