6 Let s say you think that we can sell at least 200 bracelets. How much do you think you should charge for the bracelets? Answers will vary. Students should charge at least \$1.31 to make a profit of 1 cent. Students will probably want to charge more. Now suppose that we don t have the money needed to make 200 bracelets. We need to get a loan. Remember, if you take out a loan, you have to pay it back. So it is very important that we are sure we can pay the loan back and make a profit. In order to get a loan, we need to create a plan for our business. We need to: explain how much it costs to produce the bracelets, explain how many people we can sell bracelets to, and convince someone that our business will make enough money to pay the loan back. You should write these three items on the chalkboard or on chart paper. As a group, prepare a presentation to give to a lender. Have students prepare a presentation. If there is time, you may want to have each group share its presentation with the class. Assessment Check students understanding by listening carefully to the responses they give during group discussions and on the Frozen Juice Bar Stand worksheet. Give each student a blank piece of notebook paper. Ask students to imagine that they are going to start a lemonade stand business. Ask them to lists the risks and benefits of starting this business.
