Baldwin High School student representatives visited Whitehall this month to present Junior Achievement lessons to student in second, third, fourth, and fifth grades. Lessons focused on various types of entrepreneurship. The lessons were targeted towards appropriate grade levels and were student-centered. Children learned how various resources (specifically human, natural, and capital) have an impact on the region's economy.
The lessons began with students identifying character traits of an entrepreneur, followed by a self-reflection to determine which attributes they personally possess. Students were then encouraged to create their own businesses from advertisement to fruition. The lesson culminated with students presenting their business plans to their peers. What a great way to spur the interest of some future Business Leaders of America!
