One is silver and the other's gold

Students study about our money system and the terms inflation and deflation and how it affects currency. They can figure costs of items from the past based on inflation and using an interactive calculator for their findings. Then they can role play situations and provide arguments for what they feel is correct or incorrect based on the currency situation. This site is great and is very interactive with lots of additional resources for understanding the importance of currency.

I am a first year homeschool mom. I found Lesson Planet and was impressed with the amount of resources that are available online! I have been able to find content that was age appropriate and relevant to the areas my 3 kids are studying. And knowing that these are plans created by teachers makes me confident in presenting the material to my children.
