Be Appy Monday - Lemonade Tale

I want to share an app with you that goes along with the post below. Every year, I've had my students play the online version of Lemonade Stand. They love Lemonade Stand and problem solve as they adjust their ingredients to find the perfect lemonade for their customers. 

I've found a version for the iPad. Students start their own lemonade stand and try to keep their customers satisfied with the results. They can even advertise their business. This product is perfect to go along with my entrepreneurship unit.

Do you remember having a lemonade stand with your neighborhood friends when you were a child? Well, one of my former students did just that and turned it into a thriving business.

Ten year-old Mikala Ulmer took her great-grandmother's lemonade recipe and entered a children's business competition. From there BeeSweet Lemonade was born. Mikala sweetens the flaxseed lemonade with local honey. This also sparked her fascination with bees and their ecosystem. Mikala donates part of her profits to help save honeybees and donates her time to educate students on the importance of bees. 


Tonight I watched Mikala present her business on Shark Tank. I was so impressed at how poised she was and her knowledge of running a business. And, Dameon invested $60,000 in her business! I love the fact that she's an entrepreneur and she is giving back.


Visit Mikala's website and learn more about this outstanding student entrepreneur.

And, don't forget to take a look at my entrepreneurship unit. It's just been updated!
