Activities for Economic Education
Students apply economic theory to everyday life as they complete the 19 activities in this supplemental text. Each activity consists of a teacher page (lesson summary, objectives, teaching directions, time needed, assessment, extensions, websites) and a student section with two or more reproducible worksheets.
Internet access at school or home is required for most activities.
Lesson topics include scarcity, specialisation of labour, money, demand and supply, markets and prices, banking system, labour unions, government's role in the economy, GDP, inflation, unemployment, and fiscal policy. Appendixes detail a long-term stock market exercise and a CPI project.
