Does anyone have book titles about living in a community - anything that has to do with community and cultures, goods/services, wants/needs? We start off our geography unit with this.

I have two novels I read with my third graders that ties in with our study of economics ( goods and services, wants and needs). The titles are:

Shoeshine Girl

Max Malone Makes a Million

I did a unit on economics last year with my third grade. If you google economics you will find several sites that will help you.

The toothpaste Millionaire is what fourth grade would use to intoduce their unit on goods, services, and their mini-mall. Ity's about kids who create this toothpaste and what happens.

Seven Wonders of Sassafras Springs

This is a book I read to my students because it deals with the importance of your own community. A young boy, who has read about the Seven Wonders of the World is challenged to find "wonders" of his town in 7 days. I love the book and have used it with 3rd and 4th graders as a read-to! My students have always been interested and enjoy it.

It doesn't have a lot to do wit economics, but it is a good and easy read.

Hope this helps!
