The Big Green Pocketbook

The teacher displays a $20 bill, the students discuss ways to decide what to do with the money. As students brainstorm things to do with the money, the teacher writes them on the board, grouping them into similar categories: "buy goods," "buy services" and "save the money." They read the story "The Big Green Pocketbook." Students discuss whether workers and businesses provide a good or service to consumers.

Lesson Planet has become an incredible asset to my teaching. The lessons I have found are well thought out, simple to follow and full of some very creative ideas. I refer to this website quite often and will continue to do so.
