This is a fun 40 page economics unit about careers! Posters, activities, research project, and a fun book trade are all included!
I created this standards based economics unit to learn about careers because throughout the year my kiddos share what they want to be when they grow up when they are the "Star of the Week".
Here is a list of all the topics included:
(I have also included several teacher 'explanation pages' for the activities)
Page 1: Title Page
Page 2: Table of Contents
Pages 3: Teacher Info
Pages 4-5: Careers
Pages 6-8: Goods and Services
Pages 9-11: Needs and Wants
Pages 12-14: Trade
Pages 15-16: Producers and Consumers
Pages 17-24: Career Report
Pages 25-29: Career Day and Class Book
Pages 30-37: Posters
Page 38: Word Search
Page 39-40: Thank You and Credits
We ended this unit with a Career Day and my kiddos did an amazing job dressing up and reading their Career Reports!

The mini-posters were very helpful for this unit. I have a lot of anchor charts up in my room and not a lot of wall space. I could put the posters up on my vocabulary pocket chart while we were doing the unit. The worksheets were very appropriate for first graders to read and do independently after a whole group lesson.
I am in my fourth year of teaching First Grade and I absolutely LOVE it! I love my kiddos and couldn't be any happier. TpT has been such a blessing and it's a great resource to find high quality activities at a moment's notice!
