Picture a Business

Uncle Jed's Barbershop

Description: Using the children's story Uncle Jed's Barbershop by Margaree Mitchell, students discover not only the differences between life now and long ago, but how the same economic principles still apply. In the early 1900s, Uncle Jed is saving his money to buy his own barbershop, but when his niece needs an operation, or when he loses his $3,000 savings during a Great Depression bank closure, he must save much longer than he once planned. Standards K.3, 1.6.1, 1.6.2, 2.4.3, and 3.5.3
