Economics I (Plastic & Cut)
The teaching of economics in the elementary classroom is something that may be intimidating to the teacher who may not have the background knowledge. Economics is not usually part of our teaching courses and if an economics class was taken by the teacher, it is often difficult to translate those complex concepts into activities for the elementary child. This curriculum presents economic concepts in an approachable way providing the teacher with complete follow-up lessons on how to conduct the presentations. It makes sense to present this economics curriculum as part of the cultural studies. It provides a framework for the children to understand the interrelatedness of ecology, botany, zoology, and political geography in conjunction with economics. However, it goes beyond the idea of needs and wants and enables children to understand that there are choices that are made regarding resources, both natural and human.
