Creating Digital Advertisements to Understand Economics
My students need an iPad in the classroom.
Economics is such an important aspect of our daily lives. Help my students understand the advertisement component by creating their own commercials!
My school is in a progressively growing rural community with total enrollment in Pre-K through 5th grade almost 600 students.
The town population is approximately 66,881, with 17 elementary schools in the district. The diversity at our school comes from the economic levels with approximately 47% of our students receiving free and reduced lunches. I teach in a self-contained 3rd grade class. I have twenty-five students.
My students will use the iPad to research types of advertisements and create commercials for their self-created products. The students will learn an important part of economics as they advertise their products for our grade wide product market. They will gain the knowledge of economic vocabulary and see the vocabulary come to life through real life experiences. Students will gain the awareness of how economics is in everything we do and that every decision has a cost. Students will work in groups to collaborate during the recording of their advertisements and in the research of economic concepts.
Your donation will make a difference in my class by providing my students with iPads to use to research the world around them.
This will help engage my students in skills that will prepare them to be successful in a global economy. Using different types of technology, they will share what they know with other students in our school!
