Puppet Economics

Using this resource, teachers can guide students as they create their own original puppet show and experience basic economic concepts. They start with decision-making as they choose the plot and characters. They experience production and scarce resources as they create puppets.

Specialization and interdependence come into action when students organize for production. They build their own human capital when they rehearse and present their show.

Finally, they learn about the critical role of consumers as they market their show. In addition to the step-by-step teacher's instructions, the guide includes 30 lessons, activity sheets, supply lists, ideas for making puppets, puppetry tips and sample puppet plays.
