Economics, geography, and children’s literature are combined in this dynamic unit of 36 activities which address economic concepts in grades K-6. Students “book a trip around the world” as hands-on activities help them understand that people all over the world are buyers and sellers, that resources are combined to produce goods and services, and that people have been trading to get the things they want for centuries.
