Letters to Bea #1: Duct Tape Accessories
I had a really cool thing happen. A classroom in Charlotte read my book, and then sent me letters about each student's business idea! Jackpot! I'm going to post a bunch of their ideas with little notes from their letters ... I think looking at their ideas can help us all learn about business!
One of the letters I got was about a Duct Tape Accessory business. What my friend said in the letter was really smart:
"The easiest way to [make the products] is to make a line of people and each has a different job . Let me explain how to work this assembly line . First you will have someone cut strips of duct tape, next you will have someone stick the stripes together. Third, someone will take the strips of duct tape and put them into what they want to make.” - E.J.
My friend E.J. is talking about an assembly line! That's just like the one Lander and I used in my first book. Glad to see it in action!
Here are a few things you can talk about at home:
-Have you ever seen an assembly line? Check out this video from an old Mr. Rogers segment. I love it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nSX-pKodCM
-What other materials could you use to make accessories like purses or shoes or wallets?
