Kindergarten Economic Unit

I decided to tie in economic principles into my Monarch Butterfly theme.  The lessons are pretty self explanatory, and will only take 20 minutes for one week to teach.  Give them a try!  What’s wrong with teaching your Kinder. kids how to make effective choices, state their opportunity cost, and understand scarcity and supply and demand?  It’s how the world works and by the time these kiddos grow up, our entire world will be internationally related! 🙂

P.S. When you download the pages, they are out of order.  I typed the lessons first, then the cover page, then the Indiana Standards Page, and then the assessment and bibliography.  It should be: cover page, standards, lessons, assessment, bibliography.
