How We Use Productive Resources

Fourth graders are introduced to the various types of resources needed to produce a product. In groups, they participate in activities in which they determine the costs, benefits and calculate the opportunity costs. They also discuss what happens to an economy when the resources are scarce.

Your site is extremely easy to maneuver, and your search engine sorts beautifully--down to the grade level and super-specific subject matter. As a graduate student, studying for my teacher's license, I've found great, creative inspiration in the content links on your site. I count on your site more than any other I've found to date.
