PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product is jam-packed with economics resources. Your students will learn about goods and services, consumers and producers, natural resources, capital resources, and human resources. Students will read informational texts about economics topics, and they will play games to make this complex topic thrilling and meaningful.

Here's what you get:

There are informational passages related to economics terms, two versions of a glossary, two sets of task cards, each with 24 cards, a game board, a sorting game, and an activity that will have your students looking for the origins of their clothing and other items to determine if they are imported. You’ll have lots of fun teaching economics with these resources!
