EconEdLink: Trade to the Tailor
10/16/2012 12:00:00 AM
Learning about economics can be a tough sell to young students. By using trade books, it makes the “dismal science” much more engaging and easier to understand. This lesson plan from the Council for Economic Education
uses the book, A New Coat for Anna
by Harriet Ziefert, to explain scarcity of product and money, bartering, resources, and decision making with a little post-World War II history thrown in. Includes a glossary to define key concepts, resources to use when teaching the lesson, an assessment activity, and ways to extend the lesson.courtesy of Knovation
