Product Description

This is an entire Project Based Learning Unit on ECONOMICS. It takes a teacher and their class, step by step throughout the entire Economics Curriculum. Don’t let planning PBL Units stress you out! This unit is all set for your entire planning. It will save you hours of your time.

Economics For Kids helps students gain life skills in problem solving, investigating, financial literacy and engages them in challenges. We start a classroom economy and then teach on goods and services, profit and loss, supply and demand, needs and wants, business plans, advertising, marketing, adding and subtracting with money, how to keep a ledger, business planning and so much more!

The best part is the ending project which is a Classroom Marketplace, where students get to sell their goods and services to other people or to classmates. It makes the unit come to full circle.

This unit integrates math, social studies, ELA and writing. The entire unit takes approximately 4-5 weeks but can be extended longer or cut shorter.

It is based off of using PBL, Project Based Learning. PBL is a student centered learning model in which students work on a project for an extended period of time using a Driving Question and all subject areas. However, you do not need to be a PBL classroom to use it!

Reviews from trusted teachers:

"My kiddos went crazy for this unit! Absolutely one of the best things I've brought

into my classroom!" -- Teaching with Technology

"I love how detailed this unit is! I am using it to help supplement what our textbook

does not already provide. I can't wait to do the final marketplace project!" -

T.Whitten

"This is my first PBL and I am so pleased with this product. It covered the basic

concepts before setting up a business. I love that the project is set up in a way

where it can be edited in what you use. The story that accompanies the package

is great." Teacher Cici
