Year 6: Economics And Business is designed to help students become more responsible as consumers.
This book encourages students to consider the advantages of buying products which are Australian and environmentally friendly. Year 6: Economics And Business asks them to think about family spending, the need to budget, and appreciate that resources are not limitless. Key economic terms, such as trade-offs and opportunity costs are taught by asking students to think about how these concepts relate to their own lives. The final section of the book focuses on differentiating between businesses and industries. Economics and Business is an important learning area included in the Australian curriculum which helps students understand the world beyond the classroom.
