The teacher's guide is the first in a series of three developed for primary and early intermediate levels. The learning experiences focus on helping students to develop an understanding of the family as an economic unit, to acquire elementary classification skills, to appreciate the priority families must place on satisfying basic economic needs, and to recognize that there are similarities and differences among the needs and wants of various families. Students are given opportunities to begin to attain self-sufficiency as consumers by learning to read price tags, count money, and make change. Subject areas for which the materials in this guide have potential are social studies and math. Each set of learning experiences contain a student objective, set overview, resource list, teacher-preparation tasks, learning activities, and suggestions for evaluation-summary activities. Activity-coordinated resource materials include transparency masters, evaluation materials, and worksheets. (Author/NJ)
