BCPS Curriculum Grade 2 Unit 2 Economics in Communities Grade 3 Unit 2 Econ and Me Maryland State Curriculum Standard 4 Economics Indicator 2. Explain the production process Objectives Identify the natural, capital, and human resources used in the production of a good or service Identify examples of specialized workers in the school and community, such as nurses, truck drivers, lawyers, and postal workers Common Core State Standards Reading: 1. Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text. Writing: 7. Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation. Standards for the 21 st Century Learner Standards for the 21 st Century Learner Read, view, and listen for information presented in any format (e.g. textual, visual, media, digital) in order to make inferences and gather meaning Use strategies to draw conclusions from information and apply knowledge to curricular areas, real-world situations, and further investigations. Maryland Technology Literacy Standards for Students 3.0 : Use a variety of technologies for learning and collaboration. Time Frame: 6 to 7 45 minute class periods are required to complete the research and activities. Differentiation: Students may be paired for the student activity. Students may access the Scholastic website read aloud option. Students may use closed captioning on Safari Montage and Brainpop Jr. videos. For the final assessment, students have the option to use pictures rather than words to list the resources from the video. Learning Styles:Learning Styles: The videos in this project appeal to the visual and auditory learners. Students may utilize their tactile skills when completing the interactive matching activities and the final assessment. Notes to the teacher: This project is intended for students in grades 2-3. The project reflects learning from the Grade 2 Social Studies Unit 2 Economics in Communities and the Grade 3 Econ and Me unit. Understanding economics and where goods and services come from is a key understanding to many future Social Studies units in the intermediate grades.
