This template is used for opening activities in Economics, and the student love the structure and entrance into the classroom. Do not waste anymore time at the beginning of the class as students will realize what they need to accomplish every time they enter class. Mondays include financial vocabulary. Tuesdays are totally random and I always try to be motivational by using quotes, clips, etc. that pose a thought or question. Wednesdays go with my consumer simulation (ongoing ideas on everyday life). Thursday's students evaluate a article from the financial world, either on their own or sometimes teacher directed. Friday is Shark Tank where we examine one investment from the popular TV Show Shark Tank.
