The Federal Reserve Banks of St. Louis and Dallas are pleased to partner with the Texas Council on Economic Education to produce five lessons for the kindergarten classroom.
The lessons in this unit employ active-learning strategies that engage young children. Each lesson is based on a story about two cousins—one who lives on a farm and one who lives in a city. Students listen to the stories and recall information from the stories to develop an understanding of concepts while applying language arts and mathematics skills.
The lessons include essential questions, formative and summative assessments (with answers), and instructional support (procedure steps, handouts, and visuals).
The lessons are aligned with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills standards, the Voluntary National Standards in Economics and the National Standards for Financial Literacy, and the Common Core State Standards.
This lesson received the 2019 Curriculum Gold Award of Excellence from the National Association of Economic Educators.
