Building Businesses in Grade 6

The Grade 6 students continue to work hard on their Utopian Businesses in Math. These businesses include an RC plan hobby shop and a specialty hockey store complete with its own ice rink! Their investigations have extended into their decimals unit as they continue with business budgeting; as well as geometry and measurement as they map out the physical layout of their businesses.
The students also had the pleasure of having a speaker in from Richmond Hill’s Small Business Enterprise Centre, Ms. Nanofski, who helped them learn more about what it is like to start a business in Richmond Hill. The students have enjoyed the authentic experience and lifelong learning in this inquiry! Moving forward, the Grade 6 students will complete all the elements of their business including: a budget, layout, marketing plan and business proposal, which they will present to “investors” in the coming months. Continue to follow Inquiry Minds for further developments from our young entrepreneurs!

    It was a great experience doing our utopian business plans and I got a good head start and a boost when the Small Business Enterprise Center(SBEC). I think our business plans are so far really great.

    It’s been great building our businesses. So far we have made our budgets, layouts, and now we are starting our layouts again, on SketchUp.
