FREE MISC. LESSON - “FREE Economics Causation Cards”

by The Owl Teacher
3rd - 6th Grade

FREE Economic Causation Cards: Causation cards are a fun, interactive way to review vocabulary and concepts that students need to learn. In addition, this engaging activity helps improve fluency and listening skills.

So how does causation cards work? The method is similar to the “I have… who has…” cards, where each student has to listen carefully to other students to know when it is their turn. However, causation cards do not contain a repeated language (like “I have… who has…”). Instead it will state an action that a student must perform and a statement they must say. The action can be something simple from jumping in the air to drawing on the board. The statement can be a definition of a term or related concept.

This activity is a great resource for practicing those all important speaking and listening skills while building fluency. This resource is a great way to improve student's reading accuracy, prosody, and fluency rate. Have the class read through the set of cards multiple times giving each student a different card each time or read to each other by taking turns.

In this resource, you will find the following concepts:
entrepreneur; profit; investor; producer; consumer; natural resource; capital resource; human resource; good; service; income; supply; demand; labor; money; trade; barter

This activity can be used as a quick review or as an introduction. You can challenge students to go through the entire set as fast as they can or to beat their previous record.

***I guarantee your students will LOVE this activity so much they'll be begging to do it again!
