United Streaming has a video that I like to use at the beginning of the unit.
I usually start with needs and wants, as well as goods and services. There are some great resources on SMART Exchange. Here is part of one that I like (by Paulwijaya).
I made this foldable for students to write definitions for needs, wants, goods, and services.
After going over definitions, my students can brainstorm examples and record them here. ( I have them do this with a partner or in a small group.)
If you would like a copy of these three economics organizers, you can get them for free here.
I am looking forward to sharing more resources with you as we progress through this unit.
Thank you! Have a great weekend!
