What People Do With Their Money Social Studies Lesson Plan Day 2 Reflection: Which part of the lesson do you think will be the easiest for you to teach? I think the easiest part of the lesson will be for me to teach them about banks and why people use them. It seems like a fairly simple concept to grasp. Which part will be most challenging for you to teach? I think the most difficult part will be teaching them about interest. I expect students to have difficulty understanding what interest means. How will you follow up or extend this lesson? I could follow up this lesson by giving the students fake money and having them create a budget so they see firsthand what it is. What can you do for students who dont grasp the concepts? For students who dont grasp the concept I would pull them aside for additional help. Which part of the lesson, if any, do you think might need to change? I think the lesson is fine as is. When you were writing this lesson plan, what was the most difficult part? I wasnt sure if my activity was enough for this lesson. It seems really simple. But after looking back, I think the writing piece is fine for this lesson.
