Homer Price

An engaging and unique lesson that combines literature and economics is here for you. In it, learners read the short story, "The Doghnuts" found in  the book Homer Price. Pupils define "capital resources," and utilize a worksheet embedded in the plan to identify a machine in their own home that serves to increase productivity. This fine plan should result in some fruitful discussion on economic theory and practice.

Lesson Planet has been a lifesaver in assisting me with planning great lessons for my students. It has helped me to see what other teachers are using to engage their students in learning.
