Be the Writer
On a separate sheet of paper, students will put pencil to paper to write sentences that incorporate some of the examples of goods and services. This activity will allow you to assess each student’s understanding of the concept while letting them get into some creative writing practice of their own.
Show a card to the students and have them tell you whether it’s a good or service using a choral response.
