Picture of 3D Business Proposal
During my Introduction to Business class the students will construct a 3-dimentional model of their proposed business. The model will include the specific location in the students city, they will add adjacent buildings, streets, fields, or possible demolitions, and reconstructions or constructions that will need to take place for their business to be successful and built to city code. The students will have had prior lessons on marketing, how the location is vital for a business, budgeting, insurance, business costs, real estate terms and the many types of businesses.

Each student must have background information and research the potential business and business location before being able to build the replica model.
After the students have researched local business real estate on line, made calls to realtors in class, sent emails and budgeted the potential costs of their chosen property, they will begin their 3-dimentional model. The business plan model will be an EXACT replica of the location the student has chosen.
