Practical arts are subjects such as wood shop and home economics. Home economics are learned everyday in our school, not so much as a "class", but learned through everyday events. Cooking, baking, and sewing are home economics, but not all there is to home economics. When a child is taught to make his/her own bed each morning that is home economics for a young child. House keeping habits, grocery shopping, taking care of a younger sibling all are home economics that can teach on an elementary level. For older children, a savings or checking account of their own is a way of learning how to deal with money. Many more things could be listed here as well.
