The 15 economics lessons in this book were designed with elementary and middle school students in mind, but can also be used by high school students. Each concept that is introduced in the book is detailed in the Voluntary National Content Standards in Economics, and many of those concepts are also found in individual states’ standards.
The lessons found in this curriculum can be used on their own or to supplement other materials. They are most successful when completed sequentially but may be used individually as well. Lessons 1-8 cover the most basic concepts, while lessons 9-15 delve deeper into more complex issues.
Also included in Playful Economics are additional resources and a pretest/post test with answers.
