(TE 197) What is the exchanging of goods and services without using money called? (TE 197) Why do most people today use money? (Review question p. 197) What is one way you take part in trade? (TE 198) What do farmers in the United States specialize in growing? (Review question p. 199) What does it mean to specialize?

5. CLOSURE: Discuss the three statements in the Review/Assess section of TE 199. F. Assessment: What will you use to measure student understanding? Draw a picture activity (TE 199): Have students draw a picture of something they want, telling what they would be willing to barter to get it. Explain how you will know students understand the concepts from the lesson. Students must show an understanding of trade by providing an example. Having students draw a picture and explain what they want and are willing to barter to get it, will show if they grasp the concepts of this lesson. G. Reflection: 1. Which part of the lesson do you think will be the easiest for you to teach? I think the easiest part will be the drawing activity at the end of the lesson. 2. Which part will be most challenging for you to teach? I dont think this lesson will be challenging, it is pretty easy to follow. 3. How will you follow up or extend this lesson? As an extension to this lesson, I will use the Extend Lesson 6 (p. 200-201) about money from countries around the world. 4. What will you do for students who dont grasp the concepts? For students who dont grasp the concept, I will use the Reteach Mini Lesson shown at the bottom of TE p. 199. We will work together to complete the diagram to show what they learned about trade between two countries. 5. Which part of the lesson, if any, do you think might need to change? I liked this lesson; I dont think I would change anything.
