Students learn how the American business system works by starting competing companies that make the most successful product—either the finest-tasting popcorn or the best-flying paper airplanes.
The free enterprise system, the elements of manufacturing, and the methods used by advertisers to encourage consumers to buy are a few of the topics covered. Some activities include selecting sites, organizing advertising campaigns, and filling out job applications. This may be played in two or three phases; using three would take 15 class periods.
