Design a Lemonade Stand Project Based Learning



Lemonade Stand – Make a Model and create a Financial Plan. This Project Based Learning (PBL) task is to design a Lemonade Stand model to scale and produce a business plan to sell lemonade to customers.

I use these steps for Project Based Learning in my teaching and learning space.

  1. Setting the stage for the learning that is about to happen and making a link back to a real life scenario
  2. The teacher negotiates the criteria for evaluating the projects
  3. Students become project designers
  4. Students discuss the information needed for their designs
  5. Students accumulate the materials necessary for the project
  6. Students create their projects
  7. Students prepare to present their projects
  8. Students present their projects
  9. Students reflect on the process and evaluate the projects based on the agreed criteria
  • Students can work individually, in pairs or in groups.
  • They work through a task to design an outcome using their creative abilities.
  • The task is usually interdisciplinary and can involve Numeracy, Literacy, Science, Design and Technology.
  • The teacher’s role is to guide, check in and help to uncover content to be covered.
