Crescent 6th Graders Participate in Junior Achievement By Jamie Briggs
During the Fall semester Mrs. Sikes’ 6th grade class participated in the Junior Achievement “It’s My Business” entrepreneurship curriculum. Staff volunteer Jamie Briggs led the program which incorporated entrepreneurship skills, financial literacy and critical thinking as the students explored careers in a worldwide economy.
The students studied successful entrepreneurs such as Bill Gates, Colonel Sanders and Tony Hawk. The students learned how each entrepreneur identified a need for products or services, developed innovative solutions, incorporated knowledge of their customer base, and shared a belief in their own skills and abilities to launch successful businesses. The 6th graders learned the difference between gross profit and net profit, and discussed the different types of expenses that can impact the bottom line. The class also learned about social entrepreneurship: Businesses designed to help the community or specific segments of a community.
Some of the class projects included the design of a Teen Club, creating a space plan and estimating their operating expenses; an auction, where students decided whether or not to invest in several well-known business including Microsoft, Famous Amos Cookies and Disneyland; and the creation advertisements and other promotional material for new companies.
At the conclusion of the program Mrs. Briggs and Dr. Mork awarded certificates of completion to each 6th grade student and everyone celebrated with cupcakes!
Junior Achievement is a non-profit organization providing a series of business, economics and life skills programs to enhance the education of young people. If you are interested in becoming a Junior Achievement volunteer, please contact Mrs. Briggs.
