Students visualize a business community by creating a mural, and gain perspective about working by developing a short story about employees. After learning about the role of businesses in the community, students develop an advertising campaign to boost business sales; decide how to fill a vacant lot; learn about problems in business communities, like loitering; and, finally, plan a celebration. The complete unit includes a teacher's handbook, and a CD with reproducible student portfolios, and content slides. The entire unit may be downloaded as an ebook. Grades K–3.
