Product Description

Please note - the Preview only covers the printable part of this activity, not the S'Mores PPT which is also included in this file.

Economics Fun –Journal or Portfolio Cover and Essential Questions
Updated with Information Text Graphic Organizer

Essential Questions:
I leave the science and social studies essential questions displayed all year long as a reminder of all we’ve discovered throughout our integrated units. A blank one has been added for modification. Optional questions are included also.

Interactive Journal Cover To have all notes in one place, simply add lined paper, fold in half and staple (full page version included too). Students write essential questions on the back and think of answers based on prior knowledge. Then they revise their thinking over the course of the unit.

Informational Text Graphic Organizer
This organizer sends students on a hunt for vocabulary, graphs, captions and more. It is suitable for most non-fiction texts on economics (even a textbook). Students could use it as a ‘treasure hunt’ at the beginning of a unit, or as a test prep at the end of the unit. Easily differentiated by making a goal of a certain amount of answers as a baseline and then a super challenge to nonfiction feature on the page!
