Goods & Services
- 1-E1.0.1 Distinguish between producers and consumers of goods and services.
The learner will be able to compare producers and consumers of goods and producers and consumers of services by acting out separately with a fellow student what a producer and consumer of goods looks like and what a producer and consumer of services looks like in front of their classmates, and by evaluating whether or not their classmates are acting out the correct interaction (goods vs. services). Students will also be able to make real world connections by identifying the job(s) of their parents or grandparents and determining whether or not their jobs are in the goods or services industry.
The purpose of this assessment is to gauge whether or not students understand the difference between producers and consumers of goods and producers and consumers of services. This summative assessment will come at the end of a lesson (as opposed to at the end of a unit). Prior to the assessment, students will have learned the difference between a consumer and a producer and the difference between goods and services. By connecting these concepts to jobs of parents and/or grandparents, this assessment demonstrates whether or not students are connecting the concepts of consumer/producer and goods/services in an authentic and real world way.
For this activity, you will work with a friend next to you. I want you to act out two things:
- A producer and a consumer of goods.
- A producer and a consumer of services.
To act this out, one of you needs to be the producer and one of you needs to be the consumer. I want you to show me the difference between goods and services.
Next, I want you to talk with a friend next to you about what your parents or grandparents do for a job. Are they a producer or consumer of goods or are they are producer or consumer of services?
