Product Description
This is a great way to introduce concepts associated with the economy. In my experience as a social studies teacher my students would struggle to make connections with past events and the magnitude of how such events impact one’s life. I always tried to make sure that they understood certain concepts, by making connections, before I taught the actual standard. In the case of social class, an important concept associated with the Civil War or Industrial Revolution, I liked to start with what they know about money first.


Goal of Lesson: Compare the economic conditions for various classes of people.


Lesson Materials: Books: Rent Party Jazz by William Miller, The Can Man by Laura E. Williams and/or The Princess and the Frog (Disney)

Grade Levels: Second, Third grade, elementary

Overarching Theme/Question for students to consider: Analyze the impact of social class (i.e. wealthy, middle class, low-income) on one’s life.




Ask students:

Do they think it’s fair that some families have so much and some do not?
Discuss with students that some people have lots of money and some do not.
