Economics Alive.
Foley, Sue
News and Notes on the Social Sciences, p4-6 Win 1984-85
Activities to stimulate interest in and knowledge about economics among seventh graders are described in this paper. Major activities include: (1) initiating a round of student team interviews with parents and other working adults, (2) presenting a case-study simulation whereby a panel of community experts evaluates student decision-making and then gives their choice, (3) an activity in which student-prepared dishes represent a major agricultural product from each state, and (4) having students draw conclusions from their interviews. Instructions for recruiting adults for the interview and case study activities, and for organizing events are provided. Possible pitfalls are noted for each activity. (IS)
