This session focuses on engaging elementary students in the understanding that they are producers and the work they do at school and at home has value. Teachers will be equipped with resources to teach the SOLs related to resources, producing goods and services, people work to acquire the things they want, and our income, or saving through home production, allows us to have the goods and services we choose. 

This session will satisfy the requirements for Module 2 of the K-3 Economics Institute which allows teachers to experience methods for teaching all of the K-3 elementary economics related Standards of Learning in a manner that is hands-on, effective, and fun. Designed to strengthen and deepen a teacher’s understanding of these concepts, it also provides a variety of resources ready for use in the classroom, including lessons, performance based assessments, and demonstrations linked to children’s literature, both classic and new.

Participants who complete Modules 1-4 (12 instructional hours) and pass a test will earn recognition as a VCEE Certified Economics Educator: K-3.  

Dinner will be provided.

To complete the certification attend Everyday Economics:  When to Spend and When to Save (K-3 Modules 3 & 4) – Tuesday, June 13, 2017 (8:30  am – 3:30 pm) Lynchburg College
