PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This "Make a Town" Economics unit it a perfect way to engage your students while learning all the economic concepts. Your class will transform your classroom into a town. Your students will learn about: needs, wants, goods and services, producers, consumers, and opportunity cost. This unit also implements other content areas (economics, social skills, map skills, and writing skills).
It will take about 2-3 weeks to teach or however long you want it to take.
This packet does not give full lesson layouts. However, it gives lesson ideas on a daily basis, which I think are detailed and clear enough). We all write lesson differently, this is an easier way to best suite everyone.
In my opinion:
Students will be engaged, busy, have fun, and learn a lot! Parent & student feedback were all positive. Parents were amazed with how much their child learned and loved the sheets that were filled out and sent home. The parents had a clear idea of what their child was learning throughout the process.
