Free- Fantastic business and management app for kids. And, YES, it does exactly what you think it would. You are creating your own lemonade stand empire from your iPad. What I like so much about this app is the attention paid to the details of starting a small business. Students have to manage inventory, rent locations, adjust pricing, adjust the recipe, upgrade equipment, advertise, all in hopes of pleasing the customers and making the most money they can. There is also a nice little spreadsheet that is shown at the end of each day that calculates profit margin and gives tips about how to make the business better. The graphics take me back to my original Nintendo days, but the students seem to like the 16-bit fun!
