This session focuses on engaging elementary students in recognizing that they have to make choices about “allocating” their limited income – spending it now or saving it to spend on something larger in the future. Economics is a part of everyday life and can be integrated throughout the curriculum.  This session also concentrates on bringing economic instruction into your language arts, math, music, art, and science curriculum with an emphasis on overarching understandings and lessons, activities and performance based assessments to help teachers reach their goals in economic instruction.

This session will satisfy the requirements for Modules 3-4 of the K-3 Economics Institute. Participants who complete Modules 1-4 (12 instructional hours) and pass a test will earn recognition as a VCEE Certified Economics Educator: K-3.  

Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
