Admongo- A great way to teach kids about advertising and its role. Also how to understand what ads are for and how to avoid problems. Teacher and parent section give extra ideas, lessons, and support. Glad I repinned this one!
Economics Lesson in Incentives: "Classroom Helpers"
Using this easy-to-execute lesson plan, students will explore incentives and disincentives through a classroom experiment. This lesson plan includes a full script, step-by-step instructions, and a final group assignment to cement the concepts.
Everywhere you look, you see advertisements. Many ads target kids ages 8 to 12. Do your students have the critical thinking skills to understand ads, what they're saying, and what they want kids to do? The campaign has four components: a game-based website at Admongo.gov; sample ads that can be used in the classroom; free lesson plans; and teacher training videos. These tools will help build ad literacy skills. http://ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/admongo/teachers.shtml
ScootPad. OK, so it's aligned with the Common Core, and I'm not a common core fan. But for those of us who live in stricter states/districts, this might be a good way to make sure your kids are on target with what is required. *FREE
