What Is Money?

Students participate in a simulated exchange of goods. In this bartering lesson plan, students trade ingredient word cards with a goal of obtaining all the necessary ingredients to bake cookies. Students make connections with money and purchasing along with supply and demand. Additional activities are included that serve as an extension lesson about how we use money today.

Lesson Planet was a great help to me during my student teaching. The site allowed me to find the lessons and support materials necessary for me to create lesson plans.
