Integrate economics with The Little Red Hen, a timeless fable. I use this pack during our 3rd Common Core 1st Grade Unit: Fables, Economics and Their Life Lessons. The Little Red Hen is a perfect story for integrating economic terms into literature. We read the story The Little Red Hen, by Paul Galdone, and retell using the sequencing cards. Then we also reread to listen for goods/services and sort those and reread to listen for natural, capital and labor/human resources and sort those.
I use the interactive powerpoint file for whole group instruction where we can do each sort in PowerPoint together. The masters can be used for independent/group work, assessment, or laminated for partner work during centers or stations.
The Masters and slides are in PDF format, so they can be printed or imported into other software, but not interactive. There is an additional file included for an interactive PowerPoint as well.
Included in this packet:
-student objectives and Common Core Standards on each sort
-sequencing cards masters (full color cards)
-sequencing interactive powerpoint slide
-goods/services sort master page (black and white cut and paste and full color sort cards)
