In the teacher's guide, learning experiences focus on helping students in primary grades develop their understanding of the interrelationships among businesses, workers, and families through examinations of local stores and businesses and of the workers who work in them. Students are given the opportunity to acquire economical awareness and self-sufficiency. They learn to match needed goods and services to the types of stores and businesses that provide them. They identify and explore the basic business principles of income, expenses, and dependence on workers, customers, and other businesses. The subject area for which the materials in the guide have potential is social studies. Each set of learning experiences contains a student objective, set overview, resource list, teacher-preparation tasks, learning activities, and suggestions for evaluation-summary activities. Activity-coordinated resource materials include worksheets, a game, and evaluation materials. (Author/NJ)
