    We are supposed to cover the difference between wants and needs. We are starting a unit on money so I thought this would be the perfect time. Do you guys know of a book that I could tie in with the lesson? TIA!

    I have no ideas on a book about wants and needs, but I saw a great activity a few years ago when I was subbing! The students made collages with wants on one side and needs on the other. They just cut pictures out of Sunday ads or magazines. It was really cute and got the point across!

    I don't know about a book, but MOntessori schoools do a lesson called "The fundamental needs of man". It talks about what needs truly are....shelter,food, clothing. You might want to look it up.
