PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Economics fun – Writing Prompts and Graphic Organizers

Please see the preview for this part of the BUNDLE.

Double the ‘bang for your buck’ with these writing prompts that integrate social studies. This year I used them with a 5th grade tutoring class. I saw reluctant writers use the essay format correctly. Engaging activities and the promise of completing our Economic S’mores Activity were very motivating.

Some of these prompts are featured as icons in the S’mores PPT.
