I use this packet during our Life Lessons Common Core Unit in 1st Grade.
We read the book, discuss the life lesson, sequence the story and come up with a giving project for our class to do as a service project. We learn economics concepts like scarcity, choice, opportunity cost and resources. This also works well around the holidays and the kids love the chance to reap the benefits of being givers!
