- Discuss the costs and benefits of “going green” during the holiday season.
- Explore the concept of the value of using three children’s picture books to teach economics and personal finance.
- Relate the concepts of productive resources, goods, services, opportunity cost, entrepreneurship, and decision-making as they pertain to both the wreath-making and the featured picture books.

The first part of this session features the economic lessons learned during a wreath making workshop. The second half will showcase three picture books, along with support materials, that tell stories of the process of growing trees to market during the holiday season.
