In this lesson, students hear a story about a fox who must make a series of trades to get something he wants. The students complete a worksheet tracing the various trades the fox makes. They then are asked to complete a puzzle activity with a group but are not given all the necessary components. They must barter with other groups to obtain the pieces and supplies needed. Finally, the students complete an assessment using a text-to-text, text-to-self, and text-to-world format to compare the story One Fine Day with a new story about trading. Students should have basic knowledge of the following economic concepts prior to this lesson: trade, goods, services, and money.
This lesson plan is designed for teaching grades K, 1, and 2.
