Task cards are skill based activities that come in the form of an instructional card that presents a task to the student. Teachers can implement task cards independently, collaboratively, or even as a whole group. This resource will focus on many economic terms such as producer, consumer, goods, services, productive resources, and more.

Teachers will receive digital access of all materials used in the workshop.
