Middle School Social Studies News: April 2012

In Social Studies we are swimming in a pool of economics.  Each class period is dedicated to a different concept and thus far we have covered scarcity, market vs. command economies, opportunity costs, factors of production, economic incentives and competition.

We are continuing with a few more concepts, like supply, demand and equilibrium price, and then will begin focusing our attention on the Bartering Bonanza.  This is a big event that will require every middle school student to make a product to market and “sell” in an effort to raise items needed at the local homeless shelters.  Look for this event in the second or third week of April.
