Product Description
This lesson is an informational text that teaches students the basics of money and economy. On the level of language, it is equivalent to texts on Common Core’s Grades 3 or 4 complexity band. But because of its subject matter, this text can also be enjoyed by and would be very useful for students in Grades 5 and 6. For teachers of ELL and ESL students, particularly, this lesson might be more appropriate for Grades 5 and 6.

The various worksheets included with the text align with the Common Core standards in ELA Literacy that are listed below. The worksheets integrate cross-discipline skills, focusing particularly on the thinking and writing skills required for the Common Core ELA Testing Program. I don’t believe in “teaching for the test,” but as I feel that teaching students to think—really think! Not just give us spit-back responses!—is important, and I also understand the reality of needing students to do well on state tests, I aimed to satisfy both objectives simultaneously.

This lesson is an organic, stand-alone lesson, but will be enriched if combined with the other money lessons I’m offering.

This lesson covers the following topics:
• History of currency and why money was invented
• Who needs money and what income means
• What are service jobs and how do skills affect earnings
• Producers and consumers
• Supply and demand
• Why prices move up or down

This packet includes the following items:
• Detailed teacher’s guide and answer key for worksheets
• Students’ text illustrated with humorous cartoons
• Two vocabulary sheets highlighting the text’s important terms, one with definitions and one without
• WIK Coupons – What I Know / What I Learned template (can be used for any lesson)
• Three comprehensive review sheets. Corresponds to CCLS R1.3.1 and R1.4.10.
• A worksheet, “Meaningful Reading,” which incorporates thinking and writing skills – follows the Common Core test model. Corresponds to CCLS R1.3.2 and R1.4.2.
• A worksheet, “Use your Imagination,” which incorporates thinking and writing skills – follows the Common Core test model. Corresponds to CCLS R1.3.7 and L.4.4a.
• Crossword puzzle featuring the terms used in the text. Fun!
