Teaching Strategies - Grades 3-4. Master Curriculum Guide in Economics. Teacher Resource Manual [and] Student Activities.
Lieb, Cynthia; Stout, Robert L.
This teacher resource manual for 3rd-and 4th-grade student's uses a wide variety of instructional activities for teaching economics education. The activities include role playing in small groups, producing bookmarks, and making decisions. Students are given the opportunity to interview adults, perform services for their families, do independent research, conduct experiments, and perform in skits. As a class they participate in a trading activity, engage in a classroom competition, and take part in a simulation. Discussion, reading, and writing clarify and reinforce the concepts that the activities are designed to teach. The manual contains 15 step-by-step lesson plans and reductions of the student pages for quick reference. Performance outcomes, a planning chart, and a 57-term glossary also are included. The companion student activities manual contains 39 supporting activities. The pages include family letters, scripts, activity cards, patterns, and a variety of other classroom materials in blackline master form. (LB)
