Our Needs and Wants lesson plan helps young students differentiate between needs and wants. Students will learn fundamental differences, as well as appropriate prioritization of needs and wants. Students are asked to articulate their individual needs versus wants, leverage their creative imagination, analytical and critical thinking skills. Students are also asked to identify which items are needs or wants depending on the context.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify the difference between needs and wants.
