Add a new dimension to your read alouds by teaching economics. Children are never too young to start learning economics and you’ll be amazed how many economic concepts you’ll find in familiar stories. How about using The Three Little Pigs to teach students about scarcity, trade-offs, opportunity cost and decision making as well as productive resources? Or Dr. Seuss’s What Pet Should I Get? to teach decision making? All lessons are based on popular children’s books and are aligned to the Common Core ELA standards.
