Eighth grade students in Steven Ellick’s technology class at Oldfield Middle School recently constructed miniature storefronts of their own businesses, complete with unique names and branding.

They were instructed on how to build the structure properly and learned construction terms like king studs and headers. Signs were then added to the structures, and students completed their work by creating a plot for their storefronts to sit on.

“It's a great project in that it exposes students to real life possibilities as it pertains to them potentially creating their own business in the future,” Steven said.
