Performance Tasks:

We have talked about goods and services, and you now know the difference between the two.

Formative:

Create a chart. On your chart, draw and label 3 examples of a good (product) and 3 examples of a service. In addition, write one sentence under each service describing that service.

We have learned about choice. We have also learned about wants and needs, and you now know the difference between the two.




Goods and Services Activity

Summative:
