Here is what is included:

0. DAILY PLANS: This outlines how I go about teaching Chapter 1 using the lesson ideas included in this chapter bundle.

1. CHAPTER 1 PPT: This is a 30 slide PPT that goes through all of the concepts from chapter 1. I use 3 slides to embed some of the videos that go with the chapter. (NEW) I have just added a NEW PPT with a easy and hard notes guide!

2. VIDEOS: The videos that I use are 1. Adam Smith, 2. Checks in the Mail from School House Rock and the last video is 3. Circular Flow model video explaining the flow of the economy. I have links to all of them.

3. BONUS LESSONS: There are 3 bonus lessons included with this unit. 1. Is a lesson on the circular flow model ( this is fantastic by the way and is a simulation) 2. Two common core lessons that allow the students to investigate about the subject of economics, 3. Opportunity Cost lesson.

4. QUIZZES & TESTS: There is 1 quiz and 1 test.

5. UNIT WORK: The unit worksheet and the discussion sheet is given out at the beginning of each unit. The discussion sheet is to be discussed at the end of the unit.

6. CRASH COURSE: Crash Course is another great way to explain economics. This is only the first episode but works well with this unit.

7. FLIPPED CLASSROOM GUIDE: This guide can be used with the PPT or any other lesson that may need to be flipped, or partially flipped.


8. WE THE ECONOMY: This guide is apart of the bigger series WE THE ECONOMY. It is a great way to teach the concepts in a short way that may keep the student's attention.
