Instructor: Serving Up Economics
Economics is often called “the dismal science.” There is such a great need for everyone to have a greater understanding of economics, so it’s a good idea to start that education with elementary students. This lesson plan
gives students hands-on, real-life experience in economics with a restaurant project. The lesson plan outlines the many steps that need to be taken to start up a restaurant and the ways to connect economics to other parts of the curriculum. Help students prepare for the real world by introducing concepts of economics to their study.
