Student Instructions

This lesson will teach about supply and demand. This is how our economy works; by looking at what people want to buy, and then selling it according to how much people want it. Supplies are the goods that people want. Demand is how much people want a product, and demand lets businesses know how much supply to keep on hand. 1) Click on the link and watch the video "Supply and Demand Lesson for Kids" 2) Click on page two for an example of the student response template.
