Guides - Monkey Business}
Have students brainstorm to
see how many amusement parks they can name. This list can be used
to point out how big the amusement park industry is. Then have
students see if they can think of businesses that might grow out of
that industry. For example, someone needs to create stuffed animals
for prizes. Someone else might need to cook the food, while another
needs to build the stands for the park.
An alternative is to have students create their own game booth or activity that would be suitable for a school carnival.
For those students who would like to learn more about the amusement park business, this site is excellent:
