Students determine if they should learn to fly or not using the concept of opportunity cost. Participating in an activity, they list different career possiblities and their salaries. They also list what else they could do with the money given to them rather than learning to fly. They practice calculating the future value of money.

I have been told by seasoned educators not to "re-invent the wheel" when coming up with ideas for lessons. So true!! Lesson Planet has a wealth of sources and ideas from some of the greatest teaching minds that are out there...what a blessing to have a resource such as Lesson Planet, to turn to. I am even planning to contribute a lesson or two myself. My daughter is in a teacher education program and I have introduced her to the "Planet". We're spreading the news!
