Product Description
One way to incorporate civics into a traditional history class is to use essential questions and a thematic approach to the curriculum. This powerpoint is useful as an introductory activity to explore one of those themes: economics.

Each slide of the powerpoint asks a question about the theme of economics and helps the students think about whether or not the American economy is fair. The slides also contain some images that will help prompt your students thinking.

Ideally, you would spend time discussing each of these three questions with your class. You could use a Think-Pair-Share or a free write activity followed by a short discussion. Alternatively, you could share all three questions with your students and focus on one question to discuss the entire period. You can read more about how to use these economics essential questions here.

The powerpoint ends with a wrap-up writing activity. This could be assigned as an exit ticket or as a homework assignment to assessment students' understanding of and participation in the discussion.
