Have you ever wondered if you would be good at running your own business?
Well here is your chance! You now have your very own lemonade stand and
30 days to try and make some money. Here are a few things you need to
know before you start.
After you click PLAY, you are shown a room with a window and a T.V. This
is where you find out what kind of weather your day will have. The weather
will change every day. Some days it will rain. Do you think people will
want to stop and buy lemonade in the rain? Probably not, so you might
not want to make any lemonade at all on those days. Some days it will
be hot and sunny and on those days, you will want to make plenty of lemonade
Once you know what the weather is like for the day, look next to where
it says ASSETS. Asset means how much money you have right now. You will
spend some of this money on making lemonade and signs for your stand so
the amount will change every day.
Under the ASSETS is your COST PER GLASS. This is how much it will cost
you to make one glass of lemonade. The COST PER GLASS will change everyday
so pay attention!
What you have to do now is decide how many advertising signs to make.
Each sign costs 25¢ and this is subtracted from your ASSET amount.
Fill in the first box with the number of signs you want to make.
Next you will decide how much to charge for each glass of lemonade. Be
careful! People won’t buy your lemonade if you charge too much.
But remember, you must charge more then what it costs to make each glass
to make any money at all. Fill in the second box with the amount you want
Finally, decide how many glasses of lemonade to make for the day. Remember
how much the COST PER GLASS is before you spend too much. After you have
filled in the 3 boxes, click on GO!
Did your ASSETS go up? If so, you made money!! At the end of the day
you will get a statement that tells you how much you charged per glass,
how many glasses you made, and how many you sold. It also adds up the
expenses, which is the money you spent on signs and making lemonade. Your
NET PROFIT is how much money you made that day. At the top right of your
screen it will tell you what day of the month it is.
Remember you have 30 days of following the steps above to try and make
a bunch of money! GOOD LUCK!
