Foundation Phase learning activities

The Foundation Phase competition activities and support materials have been designed to develop children’s entrepreneurial behaviour from an early age, really bringing enterprise to life in a fun and interactive way.

The activities encourage children to solve problems, discuss outcomes, and adopt a range of roles within small groups, or when working within a team.

Foundation Phase Competition Support Materials

The following Foundation Phase resources have been developed to support you with Enterprise activities in school.  We would welcome any feedback you might have on both the content and relevance.  We would also like to receive your suggestions for the development of future resources.
