We started talking about needs and wants with a sort. I cut up the slips and had them each pick one. They had to decide whether it went under the Needs or Wants category. As they were sorting, they came across some that they weren't sure. We spent some discussing why they could fall into the needs or wants category. After some debating they decided that there should be a middle category of things that are kind of both!
We will continue to work with needs and wants this week, using our past and present (history) to help us as well!
We talked about computers, schools, book bags, chalkboards vs. whiteboards as well as clothing, food and many other things!
