Playing the role of young entrepreneurs

Transform 5 euros into 100


Well, students start with only 5 euros, invest them in buying the things they need (raw material), think about possible activities where they can get some profit and then use it again in other activities, until they reach 100.

They can promote healthy food sales, create bottle identifiers for the teachers' room, make bracelets, sell raffles, organize parties,etc.

In the end they will use the money for a field trip and for a solidarity association.

They are having great fun, playing the role of young entrepreneurs!

Ask the students, What is the name of your favourite restaurant? What is your favourite kind of food?Tell the story of McDonald’sThere are many restaurants in the world, but probably the most famous is McDonald’s. McDonald’s has more than 34,000 restaurants around the world in 119 countries, and they serve about 68 million consumers every day. The story of McDonald’s began in 1940 when two brothers, Richard and Maurice (‘Mac’) McDonald opened a new restaurant called ‘McDonald’s Famous Barbeque’. It was a successful business, but the brothers wanted to sell more food and make more money, so in 1948 they made some changes. For example, they tried a new way to cook and serve food faster – and McDonald’s became one of the first fast food restaurants in the world. In addition, they made the menu simpler: hamburgers, cheeseburgers, sodas, and milkshakes. In 1954, a man called Ray Kroc joined the company and later bought it for 2.7 million dollars. The company is now worth many billions of dollars. There is a McDonald’s museum that is located in San Bernardino, California where the first McDonald’s was built.
