How's it going? I'm Mrs. P and I have a true passion for student engagement. Every year, I love getting to the "Supply Meets Demand" lesson because it's a day full of students going "oh, that makes so much sense!" and "I get why stores do that now!" Gotta love those "a-ha!" moments. It's my philosophy that Economics should be anything but boring- after all, every single part is relevant to students. Watch your students make these connections, get excited, and engage with the material with these awesome lessons.
These 2 lessons will teach students all about putting the supply and demand curves on the same graph to determine market equilibrium. This includes shortage and surplus. I usually teach these lessons after spending four days covering the demand curve and two days covering the supply curve in my Supply and Demand Unit. Along with lecture notes, I've included engaging activities and critical thinking opportunities throughout the lessons as well as plenty of practice for students as they familiarize themselves with these fundamental Economic concepts.
What to Expect:
-2 Daily Written Warm Ups & Opening Activities
-2 Daily Essential Questions
-Engaging Lectures with Thinking Activities & Think-Pair-Shares throughout
-Student Fill In Notes for Lectures (including Warm Ups)
-Daily Practice Worksheets for Students (& Teacher Key)
-Suggested Lesson Plan
-Class set of included worksheets
-Blank sheets of paper or small posters
I usually teach these lessons in two 50 minute periods, but they can be combined for a block period schedule as well. Students need a baseline understanding of the supply and demand curves before completing this lesson.
