Heslop, Louise A.
This publication contains consumer education learning activities for preschoolers. The activities are self-contained. Topics include: coin recognition, price, and other money activities; jobs, work, and occupations; needs and wants; goods and services; stores and shopping; where goods come from--production; nutrition; hazardous products; energy; advertising; and general activities. Concepts, materials needed, and teaching procedures are discussed for each activity. Students are involved in many different kinds of activities. For example, they play money bingo, learn to match coins with their numerical and printed symbols, make a mural of people involved in different types of work, set up a grocery store, sing songs, and sort and classify pictures of food.
