Barter vs. Money

This Barter vs. Money lesson plan also includes:

First graders listen to the book, Sheep in a Shop, that leads them to think about making financial decisions, trading, and the barter system. After the book is read aloud, a discussion ensues about some of the things that the sheep considered buying during the story. The rest of the lesson touches on how money is used in the barter system, how much coins are really worth, and on completing the worksheets that are embedded in the plan. These pages go along with the simulated shopping trip everyone takes. An outstanding, 11-page lesson that has everything you need at your fingertips!
