Step 3

Review Research Information

During Research, students rotate through each business in 3-4 minute intervals

You will lead a discussion about your budget category to each group of students, using a prepared presentation on the TV in your business.

Click below on your assigned business to see a copy of the presentation and notes that guide your discussion.

 

 

The notes will be available in your volunteer guide in your business, so you don't need to print them.
