Consumers and Producers: Explore Economics

What are producers and consumers? Consumers buy goods and services to satisfy their wants, and producers make goods and services. This video from the Explore Economics series for kids helps them understand that people are both consumers and producers. It uses easy-to-understand examples.

Kids are encouraged to be producers by making a bookmark, and then to be consumers by using a bookmark to hold their place in a book. Students learn a song about goods and services.

To provide students with online questions following each video, register your class through the Econ Lowdown Teacher Portal.
