Building off our popular Financial Fables series, Jay Starts a Business takes students into the world of entrepreneurship. Focused on grades 4-6, Jay's interactive adventure allows students to choose their own adventure as they walk through the process of starting their own business. Through videos, interactive elements and classroom activities, Jay Starts a Business helps introduce students to entrepreneurship and related economic and financial concepts.
The activities can be done online with an associated student journal that can be downloaded (see below). A teacher manual also provides seven lessons to help extend the Jay Starts a Business project to a larger class experience that emphasizes related concepts and includes assessments and activities correlated to appropriate standards.
