Product Description
How does money affect everyday life? The struggle becomes real for the kids with many critical thinking activities. Through all of the curricular areas, the children learn about the origins of money, the difference between wants and needs, banking and budgeting and they explore the myriad of ways decisions about money can affect our lives. The culmination dives into careers and how our choice of career will ultimately shape our lifestyle. Lots of hands on inquiry into social studies, math and literacy. With over 90 pages, this interactive complete unit of inquiry, with the IB PYP theme of How We Organise Ourselves is full of engaging inquiry based learning. Both U.K & USA spelling.
