This was a first grade social studies class on economics. The lesson was about the fact that people have to make choices about how to spend money on goods and services. Money is limited so choices have to be made. Mrs. Sawyer showed the students a quarter, dime, nickel and penny and wrote the number in cents next to each coin using the document camera on the Smartboard. They were asked what happens if you want to buy something and you don't have enough money. Mrs. Sawyer read "The Ice Cream Shop" story about some boys wanting to buy some ice cream. The story had no pictures so students were asked to used their imaginations. Students helped Mrs. Sawyer figure out how much total money there was in the story and whether the boy could buy ice cream. Students then discussed saving up for something. Mrs. Sawyer then used real objects, she told the children that a horse cost $1 and a book cost 50 cents and asked if they had a certain amount of money if they could buy either or both. She then showed a cup to represent ice cream which cost 75 cents and a bear which cost 25 cents. She asked if you had 35 cents could you buy either or both? Several other examples were used. Students returned to their desks to draw a picture os something they would like to save for. Unfortunately, there was little time left to do an adequate job on this assignment. This was a social studies lesson which turned into a math lesson. The students had not covered anything about money so far this year, so the lesson was too difficult for most of them to comprehend.
