Class Description:
In Elementary Economics, we’ll learn basic economic terms and principles through Children’s Literature. Using well-loved children’s books, we’ll study concepts relating to:
Goods and Services – Consumer and Producers – Resources (productive, natural, human, and capital) – Entrepreneurs – Scarcity – Opportunity Cost – Exchange and Trade – Money and Profit, and more!

We will read classic stories together, then analyze and discuss the economic principles found within. Students will interact with the stories and concepts through writing practice, brief presentations, and hands-on activities.

Lessons will be based on ‘Teaching Economics through Children’s Literature’ and ‘Playdoh Economics’ from the Council for Economic Education.
