Classroom Mini-Economy

Give them a real-world experience.

Introduce students to real-world economic activities without leaving your classroom! This workshop and teacher guide gives educators the tools and resources needed to create a functioning economy inside the classroom. The semester-long simulation uses realistic activities that mirror everyday economic behaviors. Students will learn about money management, teamwork, running a small business, paying taxes, and investing. By immersing students in a classroom economy, they will understand their individual role in the global marketplace, giving them a crucial advantage as they move through the upper grades and ultimately enter the workforce.
