lemonade war book cover lemonade for sale book cover

There are some excellent children’s books available to teach economics through the real-life activity of a lemonade stand. Use these books to provide a context for learning the economic concepts of operating a lemonade stand.

Then, use the EconEdLink Lesson plan The Lemonade Squeeze. In this lesson, students read “The Lemon Story” to learn where lemons come from. They also put on a play and discuss economic concepts about having a lemonade stand. They also learn elementary economic concepts–

Choice, Consumers, Demand, Price, Producers, Scarcity, Supply

–and play The Lemonade Stand Game in the lesson Not Your Grandma’s Lemonade Stand.

After they use the lesson, they can read the online book Make and $ell Fresh Lemonade by Sunkist…who also provides lemonade stand tips!
