Teachers Guide to Economics in Grade 3.
Lovell, Hugh, Ed.; Ouchi, Albert, Ed.
Teachers who wish to enrich the present social studies curriculum with economic education will find this a useful guide. Learning activities and multi-media resources are suggested which help to illucidate major and supporting concepts in economics for the third grade level. Fundamental concepts for this grade are: 1) a land-use map shows where people live and work and what they do; 2) the things that families buy and use are called consumer goods and services; 3) someone has to make our goods and services; 4) there are business firms in our economic area; 5) there are governmental agencies in our economic area; 6) our producers, consumers, business firms, and governmental agencies, are all linked together; and, 7) economic areas grow and change. Methods for evaluating students' understanding of these concepts are detailed. An appendix outlines the major and sub-ideas of the economic discipline and provides a guide to the things teachers should cover or emphasize. See SO 000 132 for full information and related documents. (JLB)
