Needs and Wants

What do we need and what do we want? Today, as part of our unit on “How We Organize Ourselves,” we talked about needs versus wants. Our unit will inquire into how individuals or groups make choice, rights of children throughout the world and into an awareness of global issues.

So far, here are things that 4B students think we need:

  • Food
  • Love
  • Clean water
  • Education
  • Clean air
  • Shelter

There was some debate about whether the following were things we needed or things we want:

  • Money
  • Clothes
  • Freedom
  • Happiness
  • Hope

What do you think? What are things we need versus things we want? Is the bottom list debatable?
