Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Buying Local


We will be using our economics background from the history of Lumber to guide us in understanding how buying products locally affects our community’s economy. We will be creating a public service announcement to persuade people in our community to buy products locally, in order to help our local economy. Students will use their understanding of 3rd grade economic standards to persuade others why investing locally is more beneficial.

Learning Targets: 
Make a claim and support their claim with reasoning.
Provide reasoning for their claim and evidence.
Apply 3rd grade economics to compare the benefits and costs of making individual consumer choices.
Identify examples of the variety of resources that are used to produce goods and services.
