Product Description
This hands-on vocabulary strategy is sized to fit composition style notebooks, and contains easy directions for students to cut and paste into their notebook.

Students are encouraged to define 8 key economic terms in their own words, and also to make a visual representation of these terms. This allows students to apply their learning and make meaningful connections.

This is part of an introductory unit on Economics, and it is the first activity that I always use to introduce my interactive notebooks. We use it as a springboard to discuss the problems of scarcity and opportunity costs, as well as what the basic factors of production are. Don't miss out on this fantastic time-saver.
