I hope that you got a chance to read my blog post on Community Helpers. I always start my study on economics with a unit on community helpers.
My students learned so much about goods and services and they had fun doing it!
First, we discussed what a producer and a consumer are.
The students had to come up with a plan of what they wanted to produce and the materials that they would need. Here are a few pictures of the plans.
The students brought materials from home so we had a great lesson on recycling.
The students worked very hard on their goods! The results were pretty impressive!
This is a wedding cake.
This little girl was so excited because she said this was going to be her doll.
Of course, the favorite was robots.
The last step was writing about their goods. They were actually happy to write about their projects. I was so happy to see how excited and proud they were.
My students completed the activities in our Goods and Services Unit, which includes 2 fun and upbeat songs. They would actually sing the song when they were working on their activities.
