Dirt and worms is a fun and memorable way to teach your students about one of the business’s most important principles: cost of goods sold (COGS). Youth Entrepreneurs has prepared an extensive lesson plan along with video walkthroughs, powerpoints, and worksheets. We recommend sharing the PowerPoint with your students and then asking them to complete the COGS worksheet using the information in the PowerPoint. Lastly, ask them to complete the Pricing & Profit worksheet using the information they calculated on the COGS sheet.
