Product Description
Are you studying pollution in your classroom? Don't miss the great economics application of the subject with this lesson plan on externalities. Through this lesson, you will reinforce the concept of pollution with your kids, show its economic application, and draw real-world connections between subject areas!

The lesson introduces kids to the economic concept of externalities, helps them explore how they might be either positive or negative, and takes a close look at a common negative externality: pollution. It includes class discussion questions and examples.

NEW: This lesson plan now also includes a great real-life example of a company combating the negative externality of pollution. Students will view a short video on solar roadways and then have a class discussion.
