These open-mouthed kiddos are telling you about their needs & wants
, and are a super-fun way for students to practice this bit of economics.
When it comes to “I need and want this, that & whatever…” children can have a pretty big voice expressing themselves; so I thought these adorable, “big mouth” kid clips by Melonheadz, were perfect for making a “needs & wants”
There are 3 girl & 3 boy
“wheel covers” to choose from.
I’ve provided blank templates for the “center” pie wheels, so that children can illustrate their own graphics.
The first “pie slice” section, defines
“needs”. The “wants” wheel has a definition section as well.
There’s also an option where the “needs” wheel, has black & white
graphics for students to color and label.
So you can quickly and easily make a sample to share, I’ve also included full-color patterns.
Students color and trim, then fasten their “needs” wheel to their “kid cover” using a brass brad.
Keep things easy-peasy by having students take that wheel out, and then insert their “wants” wheel to finish explaining things.
Give older students the option of gluing their needs & wants
wheels back-to-back, fastening with a front as well as back cover; so they just flip their wheel over to explain their wants.
There are are 3 boy & 3 girl back cover
options, as well as 2 others. Be sure and check the PREVIEW
As a culminating assessment activity
, have children complete the worksheet, which can be done individually, or as a whole group with little ones.
