12 I can differentiate between a traditional, command, market, and mixed economy. SS

13 1. In your table groups categorize your lists by types of economies. 2. Walk around to the other groups and check your work.

14 In your groups, create a play-doh scene illustrating a traditional, command, or market economy.

15 Why is the US considered a mixed economy?

16 I can illustrate how goods and services are produced, distributed, and consumed. SS

17

18 Want – a desired product or service Good – physical product Ex? Service – work performed by someone else Ex?

19 1. Make a good out of play-doh 2. Make a service out of play-doh

21 I can illustrate how goods and services are produced, distributed, and consumed. SS

22 1. Land Natural resources Land, oil, gas, trees 2. Labor Human resources mental and physical 3. Capital Anything else is used to make goods and services Buildings, tools, machines

23 Determine the land, labor, and capital used to produce 2 of these services: Carwash Haircut TV repair Play Classroom lesson

24 Create a product no one has made before. Land – play-doh Labor – human resource Capital – tool Scissors, ruler, pencil Answer these 3 questions as if you were going to actually manufacture your product: 1.Who will produce it? 2.How will it be distributed? 3.Who will consume it?

25 Define 2 Land Labor Capital

26 I can explain how scarcity and opportunity cost impact economic decisions for producers and consumers. SS & SS

27 Resources are limited, wants are unlimited What things are scarce? Why do NFL quarterbacks make more than teachers? Why is a Ferrari worth more than a old car?

31 Happen because of scarcity Purchase one good or service, but not able to purchase another Opportunity cost is the next best thing Every decision has an opportunity cost VS

32 Build the best Christmas present EVER! Class Store Chose 2 items you want: Identify the gift you want Identify the opportunity cost. Why cant you have both?

33 Pick up 1 can of play-doh. Boys make a food item. Girls make a clothing item.

41 1. Generally accepted 2. Counted and measured 3. Durable 4. Convenient and easy to carry 5. Inexpensive to produce 6. Supply is easily controlled

42 Why is using money easier than trading?

52 I can explain how price is affected by supply and demand. SS & SS

53 Think like a producer As the price increases, quantity supplied increases. Price Amount Supplied

54 Graph the slides on the next page. Graph both lines on the same chart. Be sure that the price goes on the y-axis and # of tickets go on the x-axis.

55 Demand Chart Supply Chart Tickets Sold Price 500$25 400$50 300$75 200$ $150 Tickets Sold Price 100$25 200$50 300$75 400$ $150

61 Level 0 Break Retake Use cover sheet Book as barrier

62 How does specialization influence productivity?

63 I can describe how new knowledge, technology, and specialization increase productivity. SS

64 Hamburgers (mini-big mac) Divided into 2 groups Must follow directions

65 Group 1 Cody Shawn Ashley Jon Carrie Madison Gabe Group 2 Jada David Ryan Lexie Kelsey Hannah Cailyn

66 Directions Use the 12 cans of play-doh to make hamburgers. Take your time. Focus on making your hamburgers as neatly as possible! Each person must make the complete portion of the hamburger. Each burger must have a bun, meat, cheese, lettuce, pickles, special sauce, and sesame seeds on top.

67 Directions Use the 12 cans of play-doh to make hamburgers. Focus on making your hamburgers as quickly as possible! This is a competition!! Create an assembly line. Divide the work like this: 1 bun 2 meat 3 cheese 4 lettuce 5 pickles 6 special sauce 7 sesame seeds on top.

68 Specialization in what is produced Specialization in who is producing it Assembly Line - division of labor Each employee works on just one part

69 Pros Increased productivity Increased interdependence Each member is valuable Higher wages Cons Boring Less customization Inefficient/absent worker

70 Explain 2 pros or 2 cons of an assembly line.

71 I can describe how new knowledge, technology, and specialization increase productivity. SS

72 Cody and David own a bait and tackle shop. They produce the best fishing lures at Cave Run Lake.

Cody and David are considering hiring more employees and developing an assembly line instead of customizing their lures. Explain the pros and cons of the division of labor.
