Economics: Natural Abundance of Louisiana

logo.pngThe teacher guide includes hands-on pre-visit activities demonstrating natural resources, human resources, capital resources, abundance, scarcity, goods, services, and opportunity cost, as well as a four-square writing activity.  The writing activity includes story starters about a cotton boll that dreams of one day becoming a beautiful garment.  Also included is a post activity about the production process of different Louisiana commodities ( this activity can be conducted at the museum if the teacher prefers).

Student booklets are used by the students in the museum  galleries.  Students will locate six  natural resources in the museum galleries and complete an ideal web based on each resource as to the products produced from that resource.  Students will also search the galleries for artifacts that are products of each natural resource and list the artifacts on the enclosed chart.

Targeted Grades: 3rd through 5th grades
