Mentor Text {2.23.14}

Good Morning!  We're linking up to share an Economics text and FREEBIE!  This will be our upcoming social studies unit.  We really enjoy teaching this unit to our kiddos!  We have some great hands-on activities that really help to get the kiddos engaged and understanding important concepts of Economics.  

We've got several of the activities in our Economics pack.

Our book to share is a classic!  We love digging out our old Berenstain Bear books!  They always teach a good lesson ;)  For this unit, we like Trouble with Money.


And here you can find it on YouTube!  We love finding story books on YouTube to play during snack time!

And now, here is a fun freebie for Economics.  It uses vocab words: needs, wants, goods, services.
