Lesson Plan, Other


Students are consumers and producers. So are their families. In this lesson students learn how they and family members fulfill these roles at home and in their community. They begin by exploring the goods and services that people use and they identify those that require the payment of money. To help show they can be producers, students sequence the steps in washing dishes. They discuss the fact that family members are often not paid for the work they do at home and as volunteers, taking account of the possibility that the benefits may outweigh the lack of pay. This lesson works well as a follow-up to Simple Simon Meets a Producer.
