Shortages again?

Share now

Now it is common these days for people to talk about shortages…food shortages, diesel shortages, and more. Why are there shortages you may ask? There many reasons. Let’s take a look at some of the shortages people are talking about –

  • New cars – while there are many used cars there are not as many new cars and there is a waiting list for new cars
  • New iPhones – this is partially because there is a computer chip shortage due to the drought
  • Diesel shortages – with the ongoing challenge of refining enough oil to produce gas and diesel; along with the lack of imports
  • Global food crisis – this is what the World Bank is calling it along with higher food prices
  • Strategic oil reserves – due to many reasons
  • Energy crisis – causing rolling blackouts
  • Worker shortages – especially at restaurants

Homeschoolers/Educators/Parents: sketch/color an illustration. Theme: shortages. Write and say the word “shortages” five times so you can learn how to pronounce it and spell it correctly. List three shortages. Read the story called “Hansel & Gretel” (Kindle/Audio/paperback) in Learning to Read: Favorite Fairy Tales. Put each word in alphabetical order and then use each word in a sentence: famine, troubles, hungrily, goodies, bread.  Explain why Hansel & Gretel went into the forest. Write about what you are looking for in the stores or online.  (Skills: identify, comprehend, apply, organize, creativity, application)
