Product Description
This lesson is an informational text that teaches students the basics of economy and business. 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 giving 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:
• Differences between a Market Economy and a Command Economy
• Being an entrepreneur
• Employers, employees, and minimum wage
• Businesses need money and how they acquire it
• Profit and loss

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)
• Two comprehensive review sheets [Aligns with CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.3.1 and CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.4.10]
• A worksheet, “Use your Imagination,” which incorporates thinking and writing skills – follows the Common Core test model [Aligns with CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.3.6]
• A fun worksheet, “Punctuation Counts” which incorporates grammar and writing skills – follows the Common Core test model [Aligns with CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.3.7 and CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.4.1]
• A worksheet, “Writing a Response,” which incorporates higher level writing skills – follows the Common Core test model [Aligns with CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.3.1 and CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.4.1]
• A worksheet, “Stretching your Vocabulary,” which incorporates vocabulary skills and teaches students about Word Choice
• Exit Ticket (includes three questions, following Doug Lemov’s Teach Like a Champion’s technique)

Hope you and your students enjoy the lesson and the worksheets! Please do leave feedback, if possible. I'm a newbie on TPT and appreciate hearing from you all. Thank you!
