PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Whoo hoo! Finally, a fun (and easy) way to teach some difficult economic concepts! This 41-page unit on Economic Systems (Traditional, Market, & Command) is full of engaging, hands-on activities that will make your students understand those tough concepts. Here are some of the things that are included:

--PowerPoint slide-style notes about each of the systems (These colorful pages can also be printed out and used as posters around the room!)
--A graphic organizer to complete with the notes
--Cards for each of the vocabulary terms that can be posted on your Word Wall (I've also included a blank template for you to write your own words, if needed)
--An engaging "Show Me" review game
--A fun craftivity where the students create mini-books (based on "The Important Book" by Margaret Wise Brown)
--Worksheet with comprehension questions (can be used as a quiz!)
--A creative group assignment where the students will work on role plays using the vocabulary words that they've learned in the unit
--A writing activity where the students will "back up" their opinion

*This file is aligned to the Georgia Performance Standards for sixth and seventh grade Social Studies:
SS6E1 The student will analyze different economic systems.
a. Compare how traditional, command, and market, economies answer the economic questions of 1-what to produce, 2-how to produce, and 3-for whom to produce.
b. Explain how most countries have a mixed economy located on a continuum between pure market and pure command.

How do you come up with all of these fun activities?!! Seriously, you need to compile all of them and sell them as a book!!!! My kids and I LOVED the "Show Me" game! Great way to assess what they've learned and to see what/if I need to reteach.
On  March 11, 2014Brain Wrinkles answered:
Hahaha--you are too funny! A book sounds like waaaaaay too much work. I can't even finish the laundry, much less write a book! Thank you for the kind compliments, Kimberly. I'm so glad that you like this file! :)
