Two great visuals for your student’s interactive notebooks! Introduce the similarities and differences between the types of economies around the world. The PowerPoint presentation guides the entire lesson through examples, definitions, discussion questions, graphic organizers, a review activity, and journal prompt. First, students imagine they will be contestants on a survival based reality show and create a wish-list of wants and needs. Another graphic organizer compares and contrasts the 4 types of economies with synonyms, definitions, and examples. A mini-DBQ is included for intermediate and middle school levels as well as a practice review sheet to guide mastery.
