Key Concepts: Human wants Human needs Important Questions to Ask: How do we get things we need? How do we get things we want? What is the difference between something we want and something we need? How do we use the environment to get what we want and need? Sequence of Activities: Day One: 1. Ask students about things that they have wanted before. Ask students things that they need. 2. Give each child in your classroom a picture of an object. Ask them to think about if it is a want or a need. Have them post it either on a pocket chart, or tape to chart paper under wants or needs. 3. Show students slide show on wants and needs: Click on wants and needs power point titled: Do You Need It. It is a 3 rd grade PowerPoint, but just skim it with the kids, touching on the most important points. 4. When finished, revisit students charts on wants and needs. See if there are things that they may want to change or leave the same. *Save pictures for Day Three Activity. You may want to laminate to use each year. Day Two 1.

8 Lesson 2 Title: Trade Kindergarten Wants and Needs Unit Grade Level: Kindergarten Unit of Study: Wants and Needs Estimated Pace: 3-5 Days Abstract: Students will recognize situations in which people trade. GLCE: E1.0.3 Recognize situation in which people trade. Key Concepts: Trade (barter) Essential Question to Ask: Without money, how would we get what we need? Sequence of Activities: Day One: 1. Start by giving students an object of choice. (ex: A colored pencil, crayon, sucker, Jolly Rancher, sticker or anything else you may think of.) Ask the students if they are happy with the color, flavor, picture of what they have. If someone says no, ask them what they could do if they were not happy with object. We are looking for the answer, We could trade! Once this is brought up have the kids stand up and trade their object with someone else if they wish. 2. Talk to the students about what it means to trade things. Give other examples of where we trade things in the world. EX: Trading a library book in the library Book Swap with a peer or school-wide Five pennies for a nickel People trading one item for another using their available resources (goods, services, and money). 3. Finally ask the students if we took a watch or a bracelet into a grocery store could be trade it for food? When students say no, ask them what you need to trade in a store to get food. Money should come up. Talk about how we use money to buy goods and that is a form of trading too. 4. Show Clip From United Streaming: Understanding Economics: Segment: Barter vs Money 5. See suggested resources for more stories to tie in. Connections: English Language Arts Mathematics Calhoun ISD Social Studies Curriculum Design Project

Essential Questions to Ask: What people in our school and community help us? What do they do for us? Sequence of Activities: Day One: 1. Talk about what a good is. A good is anything you can hold or touch. Make a list of goods on chart paper. 2. Show United Streaming Video: Production Workers and The Goods They Make. 3.
