This is a simple yet challenging game! Lemonade Stand is a free game that can be accessed on this website to play. It is a great activity to keep minds active during the summer holidays.
Press play and you will be presented with a form to fill.
You will be given a set amount of money to begin with, which will roll over with your net profit or loss after each day.
You will be required to nominate how many ads you would like to run (with a given price).
You will need to set the price per cup of lemonade (you will be given a cost per glass price).
You will need to nominate how many cups of lemonade to make. Hint: Check out the weather forecast for the day. If you make too many and not sell much, you could end up with a loss.
After making the choices above, you will be presented with a financial report at the end of the day. The goal is to make as much money as possible over 30 days. However, run out of money and your Lemonade Stand will have to close down.
This is also a great business strategy activity to teach students about profit and loss. Costs and price setting. The benefits of advertising and how the weather can impact sales.

CLICK HERE to find it and download for FREE in my TPT STORE.
- Teacher instructions - The introduction page to set the stage - Case File Templates: Suspect page, evidence page, note taking page - Reading and activity worksheets: some worksheets will involve reading and answering comprehension questions. Some worksheets will be a crack the code style with vocabulary work (in this packet students will be required to match words with definitions on one page, the other is synonym matching. (There are six pages for the investigation in total) - Solution declaration page (students will be required to write or choose five important clues to convict the thief they declare! Two options provided here.) - Answer sheets and solution guide - Printable awards to give to students who solve the case correctly!
This style of mystery is different to my Math Mystery range. In these Literacy Mysteries students will be building their own suspect files, drawing out their own clues from the text, critically think to solve who the thief is, and then provide enough evidence to convict the culprit!
I would love to hear how this goes with your students. Please let me know via the feedback option or by emailing me on email@example.com with any suggestions.
If you have the time, I'd like to know:
1. Was this resource easy to implement in your classroom? 2. Were the instructions on the pages easy enough for students to follow? 3. What worked well and what did not? 4. How did your students feel about the activity? 5. Would you be interested in more resources like this? 6. What would you like to see in future literacy mysteries?
Thank you! :)
PLEASE NOTE: I have been making some adjustments and fixing some parts. I'll be editing again and updating if necessary, so keep an eye out for revised versions that can be downloaded again.
