Fifth Grade Completes BizWorld

Our fifth graders participated in another very successful BizWorld venture this week.  The BizWorld program teaches the basics of entrepreneurship, business and finance by showing children how the entrepreneurial cycle operates in the friendship bracelet industry. Students are divided into companies, with each student taking on a leadership role to support the team in designing, manufacturing, marketing and selling their products in the BizWorld marketplace.  Students can experience the entire entrepreneurial cycle as they create a revenue stream, deduct expenses, experience a profit or loss, create an income statement and value their company.
