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!
