This download includes a 38 slide PowerPoint file and a 8 page accompanying booklet for students to fill in as you present. It includes notes and activities, including an activity which simulates Adam Smith's observations of a pin factory, and an essay kit taking students through what is likely to be their first essay in Economics. The essay kit walks students through the basics of analysis, evaluation and application using prompt cards. It also gives students a planning frame to work from if needed. Please note that the resource only gives brief guidance on starters and conclusions.


This product is ideal for teachers who are short on time, or who are not yet completely comfortable teaching Economics.


This product is also available in the discounted Introduction to Economics Bundle.
