LESSON PLAN: Monster Musical Chairs - GRADE K-1

Students are read this storybook and identify the scarcity problem the monsters had—not enough chairs for every monster to have one. Students wear a picture of a want they have drawn and play a version of musical chairs in which the chairs are labeled goods. Students learn that a good can satisfy a want. They also learn that, because of scarcity, not everyone's wants are satisfied.

The book Monster Musical Chairs was written by Stuart J. Murphy / ISBN: 0-06-028020-4 is available for free to teachers on
