What are Goods? Goods are things that you use, eat or drink. The difference between goods and services is that a service is something or an act that someone does for you. Ask your kids if they can give you common examples of goods and some examples of services they see being rendered. Now, look at the pictures in this worksheet. Can your kids identify each of the people and places on the left side of the printout? Ask them to check the goods or services these people or places provide from the options on the right side.
