Spotting Economics: From Africa to Ice Cream

Through 15 engaging hands-on lessons, students will learn to notice economics in action in their everyday lives. They begin by learning to "spot" the economics in popular children's literature by authors such as: Harriet Ziefert, Russell Hoban, Judith Viorst, Robert McClosky, Anne Rockwell, Gail Gibbons, Pat Brisson, and Tomie dePaola.

Each lesson starts off using an "Economics Spotter List" to find the economic concepts in a story---about subjects from Africa to Ice Cream. The concepts are then reinforced through activities, games and songs. Five bonus "mini-lessons" are included to show how to use the "Economics Spotter List" with other books. Lessons also include reproducible handouts.
