Teaching Economics in the Elementary Grades.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Curriculum Development.
This publication is designed to help elementary teachers incorporate economics, including free enterprise education, in their curriculum. It is hoped that such instruction will help students acquire economic skills and knowledge for making decisions as citizens of their city, state, and nation. The publication consists of three major parts. Part I provides background information for teachers including a brief summary of what economics is all about and an explanation of basic economics concepts. Part II contains suggested goals and objectives for economic instruction, economic ideas, and a sampling of activities designed to introduce these ideas in a concrete manner. Part III contains additional activities designed to extend and enrich the students' understanding of economics. (Author/RM)
