PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Embrace the holiday craziness & turn your classroom into a North Pole workshop.

Social Studies Topics covered include:
•Wants vs. Needs
•Goods vs. Services
•Producers vs. Consumers
•Businesses in our communities
•Supply & Demand
•The role of banks
•Taxes


The overall idea of this unit is to turn your students into entrepreneurs and your classroom into a North Pole workshop! You will teach various social studies concepts and will guide students into developing businesses in teams. Students will earn money from you each day based on their productivity level. On the final day of the unit, all the goods created will be for sale. Students will first have to pay taxes, then will get to shop with their remaining earnings. The items created in your classroom will be great gifts students can “buy” to give to their family members for the holidays.

Adapt the ideas presented in this unit for your individual classroom. *Not all students celebrate Christmas, so feel free to adapt any way you see fit*
