Common Core Standards addressed:
-SS5E1
The student will use the basic economic concepts of trade, opportunity cost, specialization, voluntary exchange, productivity, and price incentives to illustrate historical events. Describe opportunity costs and their relationship to decision-making across time (such as decisions to ration goods during WWII).
Explain how price incentives affect people’s behavior and choices (such as decisions to participate in cattle trails because of increased beef prices).
Describe how specialization improves standards of living, (such as how specific economies in the north and south developed at the beginning of the 20th century).
Explain how voluntary exchange helps both buyers and sellers (such as how specialization leads to the need to exchange to get wants and needs).
Describe how trade promotes economic activity (such as how the Panama Canal increases trade between countries).
Give examples of technological advancements and their impact on business productivity during the continuing development of the United States.
