BUSINESS OF THE DAY: Branching Out!
Think of two different store branch locations of the same store/company. (Examples: the bank; CVS/Walgreens/Rite Aid; Food Locker; Apple; Chic-Fil-A; Red Robin; McDonald’s, etc.). Go and visit both of the store branches to identify what is the same and different.
THE PRESENTATION SLIDE WITH TODAY'S OBJECTIVES: Why You're Doing This
- Teach your child a new concept for the word “branch.”
- Show your child how you observe differences, and then encourage them to be observant and look for differences.
- Allow your child to talk and reason through the differences and why things are done differently at each location.
THE FAMILY CONFERENCE CALL: Questions to Talk About Together
- Are the physical layouts of the two branches the same or different? Are the actual spaces the same shape and size? Is one location bigger or smaller than the other? Why do you think that is?
- What are the biggest differences between the two branches?
- Which of the branches do you prefer and why?
- Are the employees similar? Do they wear similar or the same clothing? How do you know who works here?
Parents, to help your child remember the branches, consider taking pictures on your mobile phone device to better recall similarities and differences.
